    Abstract

    One of the greatest ethical challenges that face youth researchers is the way in which their research depicts and portrays young people. There is a substantial body of literature within youth research and sociology that warns against the risk that research into the experiences and identities of young people contributes to an essentialising discourse that continues to permeate the policy, practice and public imaginaries of youth. Reflexive youth research must grapple not only with the usual methodological issues of responsible research, but with how its findings portray young people’s lives and selves, and to what uses this portrayal might be put. This presents a challenge even to organisations whose central purpose is to advocate and act in the interests of young people.
