About this book


This volume brings together diverse thinkers and practitioners on Participatory Action Research (PAR) and educational development in South Asia. Contributors draw from their research and field experiences on how PAR is currently being understood, theorized, debated, and implemented for the education of children in South Asia. This book will act as a key reference text for academics, students, and practitioners interested in the intersection of education and participatory development in the region. The book opens a constructive debate on PAR approaches to education and proposes a reflective framework that allows the reader to develop their perspectives about the conceptual, methodological, and sociopolitical potential and limitations of participatory approaches.
