Aims of the review…

Bring together different bodies of literature about participation to develop a broad, ‘round-earth view’ of participation

  • Volunteering

  • Community development

  • Public participation

  • Social movements

  • Everyday politics

  • Ethical consumption


The review was to also help us develop a ‘framework of participation’ that could help to inform and shape (and be shaped by) the project’s subsequent fieldwork.
