Child-led research

Child-led research

Research that children choose, design, carry out and disseminate themselves with adult support rather than adult management. Adult support may be related to practical or logistical issues, supporting the development of children’s research skills, providing technical assistance, reflecting together on ethical considerations, advising on safety, and facilitating ways to help ensure young researchers’ findings are engaged with by decision-makers.
