Community-Led Transformative Research Tools and Applications: From Canada to Nepal
Lorenzetti, Liza; Dhungel, Rita
Canadian Journal of Action Research, v20 n3 p36-54 Aug 2020
The deepening neoliberal agenda in our global context shines a light on historical and enduring inequities of colonial and class patriarchy. While praxis is a central feature of PAR, further attention to community-led actions is urgently needed to demonstrate the connection between method, application and social transformation. Focusing on two contexts, Canada and Nepal, we highlight examples of transformative community-led research tools through the lens of social work activism. By authenticating our theories of knowledge, we enter a critical discussion on the use of media conferences and street actions as designed and differentially employed in each study. We conclude with the limitations and transformative potential of PAR.
