Education, Participatory Action Research and Social Change

Drawing primarily from critical traditions in social and educational research, this book frames contemporary issues and several conceptual, theoretical-analytical and onto-epistemmic approaches towards the development and practice of PAR (Participatory Action Research) in multiple educational spaces and initiatives for socio-cultural change. These include indigenous conceptions from Berber (Algeria), Cree & Innuit (Canada), Maori (New Zealand), Adivasi (India) and African indigenous communities in Tanzania and Zimbabwe, while critical Euro-American traditions address neoliberal cooptation of PAR, Habermasian applications in higher education, critical pedagogy and critical ecological perspectives in North America and Australia.
