Research details

The aim of my research is to focus on article (12) from the UNCRC by investigating the perspectives of educational researchers in education departments at different universities in Riyadh, KSA, concerning the ethics of children’s participation in research. Also, conducting interviews with those involved in Saudi national childhood policymaking, a further aim is to explore lessons that emerge for policy and practice with regard to conducting educational research with children in KSA. This study will use a Q-methodology, which is a method infrequently used in the KSA. Thus, a review of this method will be provided, along with an explanation of how it can be used with educational researchers.

Research interests

My main research interest is children’s rights issue in KSA. From my PhD study I want to open a new window for educational researchers to know about the ethical principles underpinning research with children and their use with children in future. Also, Increased awareness by the National Committee for Childhood about children’s rights issues and to encourage them to create and implement ethical guidelines suitable for children who are participating in research.
