Our research

Our research is based on our local and national knowledge. We use it to form key policy recommendations and inform our advocacy work.

We develop and implement local solutions to ensure vulnerable children are able to grow up in the caring families they need.

Research approach

Our research provides the evidence needed for our advocacy and technical cooperation work. It informs our work and influences national policies. Our strength lies in our participatory research, in particular in consulting directly with the children and families that we work with.

We explore a range of issues that separate children from their families and the ways to keep families together. This includes our research on family separation, on social protection and on the reintegration of children. Find out more in our Knowledge Centre.

Consulting children

Children’s voices lie at the heart of our research and inform our goals. We speak to them directly to find out what they want. Read about our consultations with children on what they want post-2015. Learn about how we’re using Digital Storytelling to channel children’s voices and tell their stories.
