This chapter discusses the concepts of empowerment and partnership in post-industrial society. It uses empowerment as a benchmark against which the claims of partnership will be tested. It evaluates whether partnership facilitates or has negative consequences for empowerment, focusing on the Education Action Zone in west Newcastle, England, and related initiatives in communities in Brazil. It concludes that it is not possible to achieve empowerment through partnership.
