Co-producing Research: A Community Development Approach

PAUL WARD (Editor), Sarah Banks (Editor), Angie Hart (Editor), Kate Pahl (Editor)

    Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


    Offering a critical examination of the nature of co-produced research, this important new book draws on materials and case studies from the ESRC funded project ‘Imagine – connecting communities through research’. Outlining a community development approach to co-production, which privileges community agency, the editors link with wider debates about the role of universities within communities. With policy makers in mind, contributors discuss in clear and accessible language what co-production between community groups and academics can achieve. The book will be valuable for practitioners within community contexts, and researchers interested in working with communities, activists, and artists.
