This paper synthesises the critical reflections on PRA of a small group of Nepali PRA practitioners, as part of the 'Pathways to Participation' Project. It summarises some contextual factors, including the historical moment in which PRA has spread in Nepal, and the issues that have arisen in association with this expansion. The paper reviews some of the widely varied views of practitioners - about what PRA is, what it should be and what it is for. It also compiles some of the challenges for PRA practice - raised by the practitioners - for the future, including innovation, training and continuing to learn through critical reflection on PRA.
