Child-led Research: A method of participation that meaningfully engages children and young people in campaigning to end violence against children

Child-led Research is a participatory project that aims to engage with children and young people to conduct pieces of research on related issues that matter to them. This methodology provides opportunities for children and young people to raise their voices and contribute their views and results of their research to the World Vision campaign to End Violence Against Children. Experiences from the field have shown that this methodology is a feasible approach to bringing children and young people’s views to the public debate in order to contribute to addressing the issues that they want to raise. Young researchers have used this approach to identify violence used against children in multiple settings.
