Abstract [en]

In this poster we present an interactive research methodology for young people’s participation in research. A model of the research circle, based on the Scandinavian study-circle tradition with democratic ideals, was created. This was constructed in Sweden. The aim of the study was to develop research methodology that included young people in the knowledge construction of central aspects of youth participation. It is in line with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child to facilitate child participation in matters that concerns their life circumstances. This makes it important to construct a general methodology that accounts for young people’s perspectives and that can be used in research about different subjects. A fundamental part of the study was also to define young people’s perspectives on participation. Academic researchers invited young people to be research partners in a research circle. The youth came from both special schools and mainstream schools. They came from different contexts and had different ethnicity, but they were only girls. The interactive process in the research circle concerns research fundamentals. The young research partners participated in designing and implementing a study, analyzing results and writing a report. In this poster the research model will be presented as well as the report written by the youth
