Participatory Research and Inquiry in Public Administration: A Dialogical Approach
On the occasion of the launch of the first ever SAGE Handbook of Participatory Research and Inquiry, co-edited by Professor Sonia Ospina in collaboration with Danny Burns and Joanna Howard, this panel - facilitated by Professor Erica Foldy - will seek to reflect on the place of Participatory Action Research (PAR) in public policy and management. It will focus on the role of dialogue as an essential component of the policy and decision-making process, where it is intended to contribute to informing, developing or implementing change. Panelists will discuss experiences of PAR using dialogic and deliberative approaches and methodologies that had an impact on policy and management. Participating panelists (and the chapters they co-authored for the handbook) are:
Jodi R. Sandfort & Trupti Sarode: "Art of Hosting frameworks and methods as participatory research"
Jo Howard, Sonia Ospina & Lyle Yorks: "Cooperative inquiry as dialogic process"
Barry Percy-Smith: "Creating spaces for participatory social learning and change with young people"
Erika Lopez Franco & Matt Davies: "Influencing global policy processes through participatory approaches"
Mariana de Santibañes & Sonia Ospina, editors of section: "Dialogic and Deliberative Processes"
