Participation, Power and Social Change

Institute of Development Studies' (IDS) work around the theme of participation, power and social change is part of a global research collaboration that explores how people participate in society in pursuit of social justice. We work with people to identify and implement alternative approaches to social change that respond to local situations and bridge operational practice with research and policy change. Designed for experienced practitioners, this programme combines intensive coursework with work-based learning and action research; it gives you an understanding of conceptual, theoretical and methodological approaches to participation as applied to practical challenges in development and governance; practical skills in participatory processes and action research; abilities of critical thinking, analysis and reflective practice; as well as personal development of values and attitudes useful in pursuing participatory approaches.
