    BACKGROUND

    Participatory Action Research (PAR) is an approach to research in communities that emphasize participation and action. It seeks to understand the world by trying to change it, collaboratively and following reflection. PAR emphasize collective inquiry and experimentation grounded in experience and social history. PAR practitioners make a concerted effort to integrate three basic aspects of their work: participation (life in society and democracy), action (engagement with experience and history), and research (soundness in thought and the growth of knowledge.
