Youth Participatory Action Research offers a framework for researchers committed to youth well-being, education change and school improvement. The benefits of engaging the perspectives of young people in research have served to challenge social exclusion and empower young people. Presented YPAR – INKLA demonstrates how well planned action research is the way to share responsibility for bullying prevention with students who can support and change a school’s anti-bullying policy.
