Małachowska, A., Jones, N., Abu Hamad, B., Al Abbadi, T., Al Almaireh, W., Alheiwidi, S., Bani Odeh, K., Iyasu, A., Gebre, Y., Gezahegne, K., Guglielmi, S., Mitu, K., Pincock, K., Rashid, S., Saleh, M., Sultan, M., Tilahun, K., Workneh, F., Yadete, W. and Youssef, S.

This toolkit provides an overview of the virtual qualitative research tools that the GAGE programme is using in order to understand young people’s experiences under covid-19. The tools focus on young people’s knowledge, beliefs and behavioural responses in the context of the covid-19 pandemic and diverse and evolving state responses to the virus. They also aim to explore the impact of covid-19 on six capability areas: education and learning; health, nutrition and sexual and reproductive health; psychosocial well-being, economic empowerment, voice and agency, and bodily integrity.

The covid-19 pandemic has created exceptional circumstances to which research activities have to adapt, both from a methodological and an ethical point of view. Accordingly, this toolkit also reflects on lessons learned that can inform the efforts of others engaged in virtual data collection.
