Handbook of Participatory Research and Inquiry

The Handbook of Participatory Research and Inquiry traces the roots of the radical advancement of methods and gives space to exploring critical issues which need to be understood in order to do good participatory work such as facilitation, reflective practice power analysis, positionality and ethics. 

Most of the book is devoted to the methods themselves. Each chapter gives a detailed account of the method, critical design features, and detailed how-to steps contextualised in at least one detailed case study. This will equip the reader with the knowledge they need to actually practise the method. 

The Handbook is accessible via institutional libraries and available to purchase from SAGE. The first chapter is available to download for free here
