Concluding Remarks: The Power of Participation
Kapoor, Ilan
Current Issues in Comparative Education, v6 n2 p125-129 May 2004
I reflect on the preceding five contributions in this issue by focusing on the power dimensions of participation. I emphasize how power underlies and frames not only the activities and management of participatory development, but also our own personal/institutional involvement as development researchers and workers. I end with some thoughts on where these inescapable power dynamics leave our engagement with participatory development.
