Talk:Community-led initiatives and research

From EcoliseWiki

Interesting book: Birnbaum, J., Fox, L., 2014. Sustainable revolution: permaculture in ecovillages, urban farms, and communities worldwide. North Atlantic Books, Berkeley, Calif. Gil Penha-Lopes (talk)

A potential interesting reference: "Don’t do research “on” them, do research with them"[1] "There are many types of knowledge and academic is just one of them. Incorporating civil society actors in research design helps to generate knowledge that is relevant to local context and encourages knowledge co-production. Civil society initiatives are holding knowledge on systemic conditions and social needs that can be valuable in city making processes. Make sure not to treat civil society initiatives as information dispensers but take into account their needs and interests" .--Gil Penha-Lopes (talk) 15:56, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

I have tried to get some references of this and did not find yet: "Such studies can provide very useful insights, in particular when they provide overviews and detached, integrated and/or comparative perspectives that might not be easily accessible to participants in CLIs themselves. In addition, many CLIs lack the time, energy, skills and/or inclination to document and evaluate their work effectively, which researchers working in a Mode 1 orientation may be able to provide." --Gil Penha-Lopes (talk) 16:11, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

The title "Research on, by and with Community-Led Initiatives" uses other words than the ones used below to describe each research type (such as about, for) and they seem to have different meanings.

Find references for this sentence below? "On the other hand, some CLIs who have hosted researchers have found inherent value in the experience. This is particularly the case when researchers integrate their data collection in the activities of the group via participant observation or other collaborative methods. A temporary supportive visitor to a group may provide a welcome change in the social dynamic, and interviews with a researcher a welcome opportunity to pause and reflect on their work in ways they might not otherwise have done."

Add content and link from TESS (Mode 1 research) to: CLI pathways or Potential (after creating a new page, based on the one I finalised and ready to be edited)
