This was from the 3-7 April Pathways to Change workshop - Save the Children and Unicef Innocenti Research Centre. It draws specifically on 4 Country studies on the Drivers of Violence and includes reference to importance of child participation in violence prevention efforts. It includes some Unicef ethical research principles, and a summary of principles on child participation from the Committee on the Rights of the Child General Comment, and a check list for measuring this.

This is a Guidebook On Child Participation in the Philippines developed by the Council for the Welfare of Children, National Committee on Child and Youth Participation, Government of the Philippines. My colleagues at ChildFund International (USA) and Educo (Spain) used it when they worked on the child protection part of the humanitarian assessment of children on the move in Central and Eastern Europe that ChildFund did jointly with Terre des Hommes.
