Initiated by Jacques M. Chevalier and Daniel J. Buckles at Carleton University (Ottawa, Canada) and Michelle Bourassa at the University of Ottawa, the SAS2 Dialogue approach spans ten years of creative conceptual and methodological experimentation. We have applied the approach to real-life situations and many capacity building events in dozens of countries around the world. Thanks to the generous support of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), collaborators in Asia, Latin America, Africa, North America and Europe contributed in various ways and at various times to enrich what we now offer.
Key collaborators during the development phase were the Academy of Development Sciences and DRCSC (India), LIBIRD (Nepal), UBINIG (Bangladesh), UNA and Zamorano (Honduras), CEBEM and EMPRENDE (Bolivia), CESSO (Chile), the University for Peace (Costa Rica), Efficience International, the Collectif des Savoirs Apprenants, The Ginger Group Collaborative, Canada World Youth, and South House Exchange (Canada). We gratefully acknowledge the enthusiasm and creative contributions of these committed practitioners and their organizations.
