Research is at the heart of the CTFB's aims and activities. CTFB actively undertakes research to better understand the ways that children's participation in media can be instrumental to enhancing development outcomes. CTFB's approach to research places particular emphasis on the participation rights of children and young in the research process and requires that children are assisted in both forming and expressing their views on all matters affecting them.
At this moment, CTFB is trying to develop a research project on children's participation in electronic media through media content analysis. CTFB wish to do this research with strategic support from different department of universities e.g. media studies, mass communication and journalism etc.
