    Abstract

    ·        To understand street children and youth’s capabilities on the street a longitudinal approach is required.

    ·        Street children and youth are the experts on their own lives and therefore research about their lives must be participatory.

    ·        Participatory research also provides young people with a sense of ownership of the research and an opportunity to develop their own responses to the findings and outcomes.

    ·        There are significant practical and ethical challenges that need to be carefully considered when engaging street children and youth in research.
