Lay summary
The overarching objective of this Kaupapa Māori research proposal is to explore what constitutes good practice in relation to ethical, culturally safe engagement and participation of Māori children and young people (mokopuna Māori) in research, governance, policy making, and service design. There is much written in the literature on participation with children and young people. This is particularly so with regard to evolving participatory rights-based discourses. However, there remain many challenges associated with ensuring participation with children and young people occurs in truly ethical, meaningful and authentic ways. This is especially true for Indigenous children and young people, and, within the context of Aotearoa, particularly regarding ensuring ethical participation aligns with tāngata whenua rights to health and wellbeing for mokopuna Māori under Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
