Handbook of Participatory Research and Inquiry

Action Research – Participative Self in Transformative Action. A Precis

This is part of a series of chapter summaries of the Handbook of Participatory Research and Inquiry

The chapter argues that all action research is participative. Not all participative research, however, qualifies as action research. The author unpacks conceptual assumptions regarding the self in support of the action research orientation to knowledge co-creation and offers a rich case study.
