Working in a more participatory way with children in the global South has set the scene for children being treated as active participants in the development process, positioning children as capable and resourceful members of society who need to have their views respected. This chapter looks at the background of children's participation in research and the use of visual and other participatory methods and approaches with children. The shift to a child-centred anthropology has been described as 'a corrective to the previous neglect; it supported the notion that a child's perspectives and understandings should be taken seriously and rejected the idea that children were in any way incomplete or incompetent'. The chapter outlines the methodology that was used in the different processes of research and evaluation that engaged with children and young people in Nepal and the UK, and a brief outline of the basic processes of children's research in East Asia.
