Research

Our approach

In our research we follow a child rights-based approach. Thus the right to be heard, to information, protection are an integral part of the research process from informed consent to the presentation of the results. Our focus is on qualitative practice research on children’s rights issues and on child consultations with children and youth.

Examples of previous research

In recent years we implemented a joint study of the London School of Economics and the University of Western Sydney with youth in Germany, the results of which feed into the development of a General Comment by the UN Committee for the Rights of the Child.

We also facilitated participation procedures by the Council of Europe on Children’s rights in the digital world and by the German government on the state report on the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. For the German Institute for Human Rights we drafted a publication on research with children.
