As a kind of youth-led research, school-based youth participatory action research aims to position young people as researchers of their lived experiences. This positioning requires a transformation of the relationship between university facilitators, schools, and youth researchers. How might university-based facilitators navigate the power disparities and conflicts that are embedded in structures of traditional schooling, whether public or private? Drawing from anti-oppressive and decolonial approaches to curriculum and pedagogy, we will explore some of the paradoxes and contradictions that emerge between the premises of youth-led research and the hierarchical structures and practices of traditional schooling using research with three different populations as examples. This session will be generative for anyone interested research with young people.
