It describes some aspects of the experience in action research that sought to engage directly and wholeheartedly with communities and explains the different conception of action research. The chapter discusses the importance of balancing the relationship between action and research and provides a brief commentary on the organisation of action research, particularly the possibilities for division of labour across participants.
