Ensuring reflection in participatory processes

Publication year: 
1999

This introduction to the "Learning from Analysis" theme looks at the definition of analysis and at it's benefits, considers different types of analysis and who is involved in it, and investigates the tools and methods used for analysis. Finally it considers the match between good local analysis and outside expectations, as well as facilitation for analysis. It asserts that thorough analysis can make the difference between a superficial descriptive report or simplistic feedback session and one that is based on a deep understanding, with ownership that motivates people to action.
