Ways of Working

How does the Citizenship DRC work?

In addition to being a source of evidence and innovative ideas about citizenship, the Citizenship DRC has tried to integrate into its own practice a commitment to participatory ideals – experimenting with new ways of teaching, researching, collaborating and communicating.

Key documents

The Citizenship DRC's research was often done through participatory and action research, with academics and citizens working together as co-researchers in a process through which the inquiry itself becomes a catalyst to further action. For guidance on the use of participatory video, theatre for development or other techniques, and for reflections on tough methodological challenges, such as how to conduct action research in violent contexts, the Citizenship DRC leaves behind many useful materials.
