Children today influence a variety of purchase decisions, making them an important audience for market research across the globe. COVID-19 has made their online activities even more relevant to research, but in our social media savvy world, kids are more vulnerable than ever before. What kinds of protocols and standards do researchers need to manage to ensure that children are able to participate safely?
In this webinar, we will discuss safety standards, expectations and opportunities for research with children around the world. We’ll look at what researchers need to know about protecting young participants throughout the recruiting and research process, including a child’s right to give “informed consent” before taking part in research, and their right to withdraw if they don’t feel comfortable participating. We’ll also discuss considerations when working with children from different cultures and the importance of designing research that respects children’s abilities and developmental stages.
