In partnership with UNICEF Office of Research – Innocenti and UNICEF Country Offices in Cambodia, Malaysia, Kenya and Tanzania, this project aimed to generate qualitative data to inform the development of UNICEF’s nationally-representative household survey, Disrupting Harm, to be rolled out in 14 countries in Eastern and Southern Africa and South-East Asia.
Using Young and Resilient’s participatory workshop methodology, 8 workshops were conducted with 87 adolescents aged 10-18 years old in Cambodia, Malaysia, Kenya and Tanzania. Workshops explored children’s digital practices, their perceptions of opportunities and benefits of digital media, and their experiences of online safety. The qualitative data generated a set of recommendations which will be used to inform the Disrupting Harm survey tool and ensure that it accurately reflects children’s digital experiences in these countries.
