Lecture by Professor Julia Davidson: Researching child victims in the criminal justice system

Docklands bldg

Professor Julia Davidson discusses ethical and methodological issues 

While any study seeking to explore children’s perceptions must do so with reference to children, there is also a need to conduct such research with full awareness of children’s rights and sensitivities. It is important that research in such contexts is conducted to the highest ethical standards. This talk by Professor Julia Davidson, criminologist, will describe the ethical and methodological issues associated with a study exploring policing practice with child victims of abuse funded by the Metropolitan Police and undertaken in two London Boroughs. 

The key reference is Davidson, J & Bifulco, A ( 2018), Child Abuse and Protection: Contemporary issues in research, policy and practice: Routledge.

The lecture will be held on the Docklands campus, EB.1.62, from 6-8 pm.
