How did we facilitate participatory statistics?

I was part of IDS team which facilitated Participatory Statistics to Examine the Impact of Interventions to Eradicate Slavery: Lessons from the Field’. This was for a project funded by Freedom Fund in two states of India - Bihar and UP. The study was with 14 NGO partners of Geneva Global. It was a great learning for me. Hope you like it.

CDI Practice Paper 16
Publisher IDS

This CDI Practice Paper by Pauline Oosterhoff, Sowmyaa Bharadwaj, Danny Burns, Aruna Mohan Raj, Rituu B. Nanda and Pradeep Narayanan reflects on the use of participatory statistics to assess the impact of interventions to eradicate slavery and bonded labour.

It deals with:

  1. the challenges of estimating changes in the magnitude of various forms of slavery;
  2. the potential of combining participatory approaches with statistical principles to generate robust data for assessing impact of slavery eradication; and 
  3. the practical and ethical questions in relation to working with people living within a context of modern slavery. 

The paper draws lessons from the realities of using participatory statistics to support the evaluation of a slavery eradication programme in North India.

Thanks Rituu for sharing this useful document. I had opportunity of facilitating one session on migration during one learning event of Geneva Global partners. So I had some idea about this initiative. Thanks for adding to my knowledge.
