A quick scan of the resources on PAR shows that it is applied in a wide variety of settings from large-scale community projects to small teams working in an organization. How the setting interacts with the goals and actions of a PAR project is explored by Jenny Cameron*. She proposes that the relationship of a PAR project to an organization influences its key characteristics and its particular challenges.
Cameron puts forward three types of PAR:
- PAR focused on challenging organizations;
- PAR conducted for organizations;
- PAR conducted with organizations.
