Student voice is a concept derived from 1989’s UN Convention on the Rights of the Child that says children have the right to be asked about things that happen to them. Professor Kate Wall of Strathclyde University reflects on the student voice for young children, and those who are looked after.

Professor Wall has published a paper Exploring the ethical issues related to visual methodology when including young children's voice in wider research samples.
