Research for the People--Research by the People. Selected Papers from the International Forum on Participatory Research (Ljubljana, Yugoslavia, 1980).
Dubell, Folke, Ed.; And Others
Originally presented at a forum on participatory research, these theoretical papers and case studies represent an effort to place the overall work of participatory research within the larger theoretical context of research methods, education, and structural change. In the first paper Orlando Fals Borda explores the relationship between science and the masses. Covered in a paper by Ted Jackson, Greg Conchelos, and Al Vigoda are the dynamics of participation in participatory research. Also included in the collection are the following papers: "The Socio-political Implications of Participatory Research," by Francisco Vio Grossi; "Science as Human Behavior: On the Epistemology of the Participatory Research Approach," by Jan de Vries; and "The Methodology of the Participatory Research Approach," by Deborah Bryceson and others. Five case studies are presented. Their titles are "The Struggle in Dhulia: A Women's Movement in India," by Vijay P. Kanhare; "Land Ownership in Appalachia, USA: A Citizens' Research Project," by John Gaventa; "Rural Training in Traditional Communities of Peru," by Ton de Wit and Vera Gianotten; "The Role of Culture in Development: Jipemoyo Project Tanzania," by Kemal Mustafa; and "A Trade Union and the Case of Automation (Norway)," by Morten Levin.
