MORAIS, Normanda Araujo de et al. Ethics in research with children and adolescents in street situation: considerations based on resolution n. 510/2016. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2017, vol.18, n.2, pp.27-42. ISSN 1677-2970.

This article describes ethical dilemmas experienced in a longitudinal study on the impact of street life on children and adolescents in street situation, with special emphasis on the contributions carried out by Resolution n. 510/2016 in how to deal with each of these situations. It was verified that the ethical challenges in the research with children and adolescents in street situation are broad and imply the connection between researchers and participants; emphasis on the well-being of participants; the protective role of the research group; the need for methodological adequacy of the study; the relativization of what is considered typical of each development stage; and the safety of the research group. Furthermore, they are based on the belief on dignity of the child/adolescent, the understanding of these as subjects of rights and as social actors, protagonists of the research process.

Keywords : children; adolescents; ethics; child rights; research.
