This blog explores the responsibilities of researchers in balancing children and young people’s rights to participation and to protection. The strategy of 'ethical reflexivity' is introduced as a way to provide researchers with the means to identify and respond to ethical challenges when working with children and young people affected by violence.

The Our Voices programme produces and shares a range of resources including written publications, practical guides, tools and activities, podcasts, videos, and more.

Check out a new infographic designed by our YRAP, together with artist Zuhura Plummer, to show how young people's participation in research and services can be protective at an individual level and for young people more widely.
