This paper considers the balance between ethical and engagement requirements when researching questions arising from government encouragement, and sometimes insistence, on co-production or collaborative working with lay people. Based on a qualitative study of the Welsh Government’s Strategy for Older People carried out between 2012-2013, it considers how best to approach research in circumstances where a population has been labelled or categorised in a way which individuals may not have chosen for themselves and where they may not choose to engage with the co-production structures or mechanisms which those in power have devised.
