Strengthening participatory practice with children and young people affected by sexual violence
Our Voices is a programme of work coordinated by the International Centre: Researching Child Sexual Exploitation, Violence and Trafficking at the University of Bedfordshire.
Our Voices promotes the involvement of children and young people affected by sexual violence in research, policy and practice.
Children and young people can provide a unique inside perspective on sexual violence affecting them. Yet, they rarely play a key role in producing knowledge on the issue. The Being Heard report focuses on promoting children and young people’s voices in sexual violence research. It discusses a range of ethical and practical challenges of involving vulnerable children and young people in participatory research on sensitive issues.
