Don’t miss webinar on 1 Dec 2017, on how to work with children and young people in participatory research and sexual violence
The ‘Being Heard’ project, a collaboration between the Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI) and the International Centre: Researching child sexual exploitation, violence and trafficking’ (IC), University of Bedfordshire, is working to promote the ethical, meaningful and participatory involvement of children and young people in sexual violence research. As part of the project, a scoping was undertaken to review international evidence on youth engagement in participatory research on sexual violence. In collaboration with SVRI and the What Works to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls programme, 'Being Heard' is holding a joint webinar to share emerging findings from the scoping. Dr. Silvie Bovarnick and Dr. Helen Beckett will be talking about why and how we should engage children and young people in participatory research on sexual violence. Exploring some of the barriers, risks, benefits and ethical challenges associated with this work, the session will include some practical reflections on how we might meaningfully and ethically involve children and young people in participatory research on sensitive topics. The webinar aims to help participants to think about some of the practical, ethical and methodological issues associated with youth involvement in participatory research on sensitive issues.
