Community dialogues as a strategy for identifying and addressing child protection needs in Shinyanga, Tanzania

In this chapter for Developmental Science and Sustainable Development Goals for Children and Youth, Amina Abubakar, Stanley Wechuli Wanjala, Patrick Nzivo Mwangala, Moses Kachama Nyongesa and I present community dialogues as a participatory research and program development strategy through which developmental scientists and local community partners can collaboratively surface, discuss, address, and evaluate child protection and well-being issues in their communities. We share our experience with a case study from Shinyanga, Tanzania, in which community-based organizations worked with adults and children to collaboratively surface and discuss child protection issues in their communities.
