Working with Child Prostitutes in Thailand: Problems of Practice and Interpretation
Montgomery, Heather
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v14 n4 p415-430 2007
Conducting anthropological fieldwork on the emotive issue of child prostitution raises difficult issues for anthropologists and other researchers. This article examines the ethical dilemmas of working with these extremely vulnerable children, focusing on the difference between the researcher's own interpretations and those given by the children themselves and the implications this has for child-centred anthropology and the implementation of children's rights. (Contains 2 notes.)
