This chapter details the methodology of the study and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of participatory research with young people. It argues that participatory ethnographic research with children is particularly appropriate to the task not only of capturing the lived experiences of children as a distinct social group but also of increasing both children’s participation and children’s citizenship—especially when ethnographic research models children’s participation in its own research design. The chapter therefore contextualizes the project in broader discussions about child participation in research and then discusses the research design and its challenges, limitations, and benefits.

Keywords:   child participatory research, child-centered research, collaborative research, decolonization, ethnography, methodology, youth participatory research
