"The Handbook of Participatory Action Research, Planning, and Evaluation"


This collection of practical tools and methods offers you new ways to make sense of the world with people, through efforts to transform it.

Other publications examine the conceptual foundations of participation, action and research, and provide examples from many fields and from around the world.
