‘What’s in it for me?’ Critically considering the value and dilemmas of participatory research

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Much has been said within feminist and youth research on the value of participatory methodologies, for troubling hierarchical power relations, centralizing participant voice and focusing on impact and action. Within this session Gail will reflect on a number of participatory youth projects in order to highlight the value of this approach (to the study, the researcher and the participants) while also critically considering the costs associated with meaningful participatory engagement.
