Abstract: While some have critiqued anthropologists' apparent neglect of children as potential research subjects, several recent works have pointed out that far more research has been done on the anthropology of childhoods than many of us may realise. The idea of doing ethnographic research with children has not yet been sufficiently mainstreamed in anthropology, though the need for such research has never been more urgent. This is nowhere more true than in the Asia-Pacific region, given its enormous diversity of cultures and the dynamism of its rapidly changing societies. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child enshrines children's right to participation; all such research, by facilitating children's expression of their own opinions and experiences, helps to make this goal more real. Our introduction sets out some of the issues, and the reasons why as anthropologists we need to take children seriously both as research subjects and as subjects of rights. © 2011 Copyright The Australian National University.
