Child-led research: From participating in research to leading it

Patricio Cuevas-Parra, Senior Policy Adviser on Child Participation and Rights with World Vision international, and Kay Tisdall, Professor of Childhood Policy at the at the University of Edinburgh, present the findings of the research on “child-led research: from participating in research to leading it” 

A growing body of evidence suggest that child-led research provides promising opportunities to engage children and young people in shaping policies and practices, ultimately creating changes that lead to better lives for them. As efforts to support children and young people in their undertaking of research increase, and for that research to have an impact on policy and practice, it is timely to consider the opportunities and challenges of child-led research.
