Participatory Research and Action

Marika Morris, review by Martha Muzychka

Year of publication:


The purpose of this guide is to help you do research, communicate your research, and act on your research, for positive social change. You will learn the basics about putting together a participatory action research project, and how to turn the final recommendations into reality.

This guide is an accessible tool for community organizations to plan, conduct and communicate their own participatory action research. It is written from a feminist perspective, but is aimed at all social justice organizations, not just women’s organizations. Students and instructors may also find elements of this guide useful.
The contents are based on the success strategies put forward by participants at a Feminist Research, Action and Change Forum held by the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women (CRIAW-ICREF), follow-up workshops, as well as extensive research and consultations.
