Title: Child-Participatory Budgeting: a global review of good practice
Description: The Centre for Children's Rights is working with Plan International to conduct a global review of good practice for involving children and young people in participatory budgeting processes. This study examines the enabling factors for child participation at all levels (national, sub-national, municipal, local) and at any stage (planning, allocating, distributing, reporting/evaluating and/or auditing) of budgetary decision-making. The review includes an online survey (conducted in English, French and Spanish) of those who have knowledge or experience of such processes and qualitative focus groups and interviews with children, young people and adults involved in regionally diverse case study initiatives.
Research Team: Prof Laura Lundy, Dr Chelsea Marshall, Dr Karen Orr, Dr Lucy Royal-Dawson
