Abstract

Calls for greater participation of those affected by development interventions have a long history. This expert reader explores the conceptual and methodological dimensions of participatory research and the politics and practice of participation in development. Through excerpts from the texts that have inspired contemporary advocates of participation, accounts of the principles of participatory research, and empirical studies that show some of the complexities of participation in practice, it offers a range of reflections on participation that will be of interest both to those new to the field and to experienced practitioners. Bringing together for the first time classic and contemporary writings from a literature that spans a century, The Participation Reader offers a unique perspective on the possibilities and dilemmas that face those seeking to empower people affected by development projects, programmes and policies.
