Learnings from Longitudinal Research for Advocacy (United Kingdom)
I will present learnings from the case study of the Chab Dai Butterfly Longitudinal Research Project which is currently in its 10th year. The research has involved listening to 128 participants who have all experienced sexual exploitation and been through aftercare programs in Cambodia. The learnings have been developed into outcomes for aftercare at local regional and international levels.
