Action research

Action research is a process that practitioners can use to examine the interventions they carry out with young people, and to find ways to enhance them – particularly by improving the fit with the local context. Exploring answers to key questions, particularly with young people, is often the starting point for this approach. In the context of extremism and radicalisation, action research can enable youth workers to identify the most relevant practices and to build practical projects on the basis of responses to the questions. A further extension of this approach is youth participatory action research, where young people are directly involved in leading action research activities.
