Being Heard webinar: Involving children and young people in participatory research on sexual violence - challenges and approaches

In collaboration with the  International Centre: Researching child sexual exploitation, violence and trafficking’ (IC), University of Bedfordshire and the What Works to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls programme, the SVRI hosted a joint webinar to share emerging findings from a scoping which was undertaken to review international evidence on youth engagement in participatory research on sexual violence.

In this webinar, Dr Silvie Bovarnick and Dr Helen Beckett from the ‘International Centre: Researching child sexual exploitation, violence and trafficking’ at the University of Bedfordshire in the UK, discussed about why and how we should engage children and young people in participatory research on sexual violence. The aim of this session was to help participants to think about some of the practical, ethical and methodological issues associated with youth involvement in participatory research on sensitive issues. 

Ethical challenges in participatory projects: Power, ownership and control – when we give young people a platform how prepared are we to listen to what they have to say?

This will be the first in a series of case study discussions that will explore different ethical challenges that can arise in participatory projects.
