Power Relations and Participatory Research
In this 3 day course, we will use practical exercises and case studies to examine power relations within participatory research. Participants will develop their own existing participatory research project(s), or a proposal for the future. They will have the opportunity to learn how to address unequal power relations to ensure the research is both high quality and is produced inclusively and can be jointly translated into positive change in communities locally, globally or both.
