Untitled letter from K. Srivastava to R. Chambers
This reflection on a training workshop covers a number of issues, including the ritualisation and homogenisation of PRA, and the quantitative and categorising orientation while ignoring other forms of expression. Much of the note concerns the need to highlight empowerment elements of PRA: how do you bring villagers together? How do you bring women together? What processes can enable the poor to articulate? How can empowerment through PRA be sustained and nurtured? It touches on the issue of PRA as 'empowerment' or 'research tool'?
