ThIs site was created during the months of June and July 2008 as part of a PhD course into research methods. My goal was to investigate Participatory Action Research (PAR) and to assemble resources, both theoretical and practical, for those considering using a PAR approach.

I’ve decided to keep the site ‘active’ in part because there seem so few sites on PAR and as such some of material might be useful for ‘someone out there’ (!), as well as hoping that by keeping the site it will encourage me to continue my interest in PAR and participatory research.

The site is not ‘dead’ – I still monitor it regularly, think about the ideas and would welcome your feedback – both positive and negative!

Many thanks for your time
