Participatory research

Policy Press

This chapter draws together the key issues to emerge from the previous chapters of the book, focusing specifically on the advantages and challenges in participatory research, in order to advance new and more creative participatory methods and approaches within the social sciences and beyond. With this advancement in mind, the chapter also considers the need to posit or locate participatory methods more broadly within a defined participatory model. Such a model is constructed and presented from a participant-oriented standpoint, and is intended as an aid to researchers (and others) who are planning, or reflecting on the use of participatory methods with different participant populations, including vulnerable, marginalised or socially excluded people.

Keywords:   participatory model, principles of participation, vulnerable groups, emancipation
