PSY20013: Survey and Qualitative Research Methods WHAT IS PARTICIPATORY ACTION RESEARCH? PARTICIPATORY ACTION RESEARCH METHODS CASES OF PARTICIPATORY ACTION RESEARCH REFLEXIVITY IN PAR Participatory action research (PAR) is...
a research approach that involves collaboration between the researcher and the community with a common aim to ‘identify an area of concern to that community, generate knowledge about that issue, and plan and carry out actions meant to address the issue in some substantive way (Brydon-Miller, 2005, p.188).’ Participation Action Research Community participation is a significant component of PAR.
The community holds the expert knowledge about their situation and what can be done to resolve it.
Members of the community are encouraged to participate in all stages of the process. The ‘action’ element of PAR is the unique component of this research approach.
PAR deliberately aims to provoke social action as a result of the knowledge generated from the research (Marks, Murray, Evans & Estacio, 2010). Grounded within the epistemological principles of critical theory, PAR asserts the relevance of the construction of knowledge and the methods used in the dissemination of such knowledge in the context of the wider social and political structures individuals are being exposed to. Paulo Freire (1921-1997)

(2) to enable them to find personal strengths and common cause with like others through sharing and group discussion of their photographs; and
(3) to project a vision of their lives that might educate others, especially power brokers and policy makers, to better understand the realities of their condition. STAGES OF PHOTOVOICE
