What is participatory research, and how can participatory methods be implemented in practice?
This valuable textbook provides an accessible, pragmatic how-to guide for using participatory methods in research. Drawing on their variety of experience in the field, the authors:
• outline the principles of participatory research;
• explore the practice of utilising participatory methods;
• lay out the realities of using such approaches within a range of settings.
Providing practical advice, real-world examples, and packed with reflective questions, top tips and suggested further reading, this book will be an essential resource for students and researchers alike.
