This chapter considers the emergence of participatory research in the context of new and developing research methodologies in the social sciences, and in other disciplines and fields. It also explores and contextualises the concept of vulnerability and its relationship with, and relevance to, participatory research methods and techniques. Particular emphasis is on the role of participatory research in facilitating participant ‘voice’ and promoting engagement with vulnerable or marginalised individuals and groups in research in more direct and inclusive ways.

Keywords:   participation, vulnerability, participatory research, voice
