This final chapter draws together the threads of the book, affirming the significance of approaching survivor research and experiential knowledge from a sociological perspective. It mentions the risk of prejudice and injustice being embedded in any research emanating from an unjust society, and the dangers of the enculturation of service user researchers. It asks what sort of research is desirable and whether it is likely to occur when fitness to participate is conditional upon ‘health’?

Keywords:   survivor research, injustice, conditional participation
