In the Middle East, GAGE is undertaking participatory research with adolescents, their caregivers, service providers and other relevant actors. This is to learn more about the availability, relevance, effects and quality of services for adolescents (and in particular, adolescent girls) in conflict-affected areas. Evidence from the participatory work stream will contribute to policy and programming dialogues on progress towards the achievement of gender- and adolescent-relevant SDG targets.
This document outlines participatory research tools which will be used by GAGE researchers in Palestine, Jordan and Lebanon. The tools make use of interactive and fun participatory research methodologies to provide opportunities for adolescents in refugee and host community settings to articulate their perspectives and experiences, while ensuring that the research findings are situated by including adults and other key stakeholders.
