Funded by the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis (the “Madad” Fund), the Participatory Action Research project is a systematic adolescent and youth engagement initiative that aims to generate evidence with and for young people – particularly from vulnerable and marginalized backgrounds, to empower them to lead community-based research, and support them in becoming change makers/advocates on issues of concern to them.

This briefing focused on research produced by young people from Syria and Syria-crisis-affected countries, providing them a forum to share their main findings and advocate on the issues they have explored and prioritized for action in their communities.
