Looking at how EU Member States involve children in research

FRA has mapped across all EU Member States the different procedures used for getting informed consent and ethics approval when involving children in research.

The respective information is now online so that it can also be of use for other researchers conducting research with and for children. FRA has compiled this information in preparation for carrying out fieldwork, interviewing children about their experiences in judicial proceedings. This forms part of FRA’s wider project on children and justice as EU Member States have different rules, regulations and guidelines regarding the participation of children in research.
