Participation Research week: Register to attend

Join the editors and authors of the new SAGE Handbook of Participatory Research and Inquiry in a series of Participation Research week events running from Monday 20 to Friday 24 September. The events explore why participatory methods are needed, who they benefit and the real-world contexts they can apply to.

The first ever SAGE Handbook of Participatory Research and Inquiry provides the most comprehensive source of contemporary, cutting-edge approaches to participatory research methods and design, as well as the foundations of participatory research and critical practise issues. Including 72 chapters by 150 authors from a wide variety of disciplines, it covers the tools for inclusive, action-orientated research for social change and new ways for researchers and social activists globally to engage the most marginalised.
