The Challenge to Action-Research.
The status of action-research is measured in this paper. First, the political character of action-research is identified. Then, the degree to which differing versions of its character may be said to be political is examined. Argument is for the creation of a balance between the institution and the individual in collaborative activity. Examined next are the political challenges this creates for action researchers in universities as they seek to find an institutional structure to match their epistemology. Finally, the association of degree and nondegree programs with action-research in order to meet professional needs is discussed. Appended are 28 references. (SI)
