This project investigates the ethical issues relating to research with young indigenous participants. It scrutinises the roles of Human Research Ethics Committees with respect to protecting these participants in the research process.
This project is a replication study of the 2005 Mathei and Gilmore project on students engaging in paid employment whilst undertaking their studies. These projects examine the impact of paid employment during semester-time on the lives of New Zealand tertiary students. It seeks to expand on the Manthei and Gilmore research by using the same questionnaire for data collection purposes, and uses a cohort of students at a New Zealand polytechnic, rather than a university, as was the case in the Manthei and Gilmore research. This study underscores the importance for policymakers to understand students' decisions to work whilst undertaking their tertiary studies.
