Participatory Research Methodologies in Development: Benefits, Challenges, Lessons and Reflections

This session brings together experiences with participatory action research or other innovative participatory methods in the field of development. We invite analyses of the benefits and challenges for both researchers and participants during any stage of the knowledge creation process such as, research design, fieldwork, data analysis, ethical matters, intersubjectivity, and knowledge dissemination. The goal is to reflect critically on the empowering and transformative capacity of participatory methodologies as well as their limitations in order to understand better under what conditions such research approaches deliver the best outcome.
