What Next? Ways Forward for Children and Young People’s Participation

The purpose of this study is to review key theoretical perspectives and practice in relation to children’s and young people’s participation. This review is being undertaken in order to enhance World Vision’s understanding and practice in the field of participation. Our desire is that the findings from this study will contribute to the development and implementation of World Vision’s Strategic Direction for Child and Youth Participation. This will be one among other vehicles that will enable our staff to tap into the largest demographic force in the world today as we rally behind our vision of life in all its fullness for every girl and boy.
