Donors as stakeholders in Community-Based Participatory Action Research Praxis as Typology in Framing their Roles
Zermarie Deacon and David Moxley
ALARA Inc Monograph Series No 3
While the Community-Based Participatory Action Research (CBPAR) literature is extensive, it does not adequately explore the donor-participant relationship. In this monograph, we argue that the future CBPAR can be strengthened if donor roles as participants in this form of research action can be better elucidated, community participants and academic partners can be more deliberate in their decisions to pursue external funding and include donors as partners in their work, and thereby make the potential of the donor-participant relationship and its consequences explicit for all stakeholders. We argue that these considerations ensure better leveraging of the potential power of CBPAR.
