Evaluating children's participation: seeking areas of consensus (PLA 42)

Louise Chawla

Journal article

Participation involving children is no different from other forms of participation- the process should still be evaluated to establish best practices, and questions constantly asked - Who? Why? How? And who for? This paper brings together observations from the Oslo symposium on the Convention on the Rights of the Child on how this can best be done.

This article was published in PLA 42: Children's Participation – Evaluating Effectiveness (October 2001). Participatory Learning and Action (PLA, formerly PLA Notes) is the world's leading series on participatory learning and action approaches and methods.
