Accepted Contribution:

New tools for assessing voice and agency: Unpacking and tracing participation across 3 axes of the 'participation cube' can enable better intersectional planning and implementation of initiatives.  
Jo Howard (Institute of Development Studies)Tony Roberts (Sussex University)


We would like to share the tools with colleagues and get feedback on whether these new tools can be adopted/modified/improved for application as part of intersectional approaches to adolescent voice and agency in the context of multiple crises

Why would you like to speak in this workshop?:

We would like to share the tools and to get a reality check from other scholars and practitioners about the applicability of these tools with adolescents and in crises. The ‘participation cube’ was recently published in the Sage Handbook of Participatory Research Methods. It provides a simple framework for conducting three-dimensional analysis of (a) who has what (b) level of voice and agency at which (c) stages in any development process. By tracing the participation of all actors through the project cycle it is possible to document who has more/less voice and agency at each stage of a process. Since publication of the participation cube, we have since used it to conduct retrospective ‘participation tracing’ on projects with young people in Uganda and Zambia, where it proved useful in highlighting some gender and intersectional issues. We anticipate that the tools could be used in project design, monitoring, and evaluation. Project actors could potentially use these tools as a participatory workshop method to conduct their own participation analysis. We have drafted a full journal article ready for submission.
