Participatory Action Research

This book aims to make a case for participatory action research (PAR) as a powerful strategy to advance both science and practice. PAR involves practitioners in the research process from the initial design of the project through data gathering and analysis to final conclusions and actions arising out of the research. It seems to me that PAR evolved out of three streams of intellectual development and action: (1) social research methodology, (2) participation in decision making by low-ranking people in organizations and communities, and (3) sociotechnical systems thinking regarding organizational behavior. In the rest of this volume, we will explore the development and implementation of participatory ideas and practices in both industry and agriculture.
