This workshop was part of a project planning process currently under way at American University, under the leadership of Professor Jonathan Fox, with support from the Hewlett Foundation.
The objectives were to:
· Exchange lessons to inform future scenarios: To inform discussion of the strengths and limitations of possible future research and learning strategies, participants will reflect on their own experiences with action-research partnerships to address what kinds of “knowledge production,” broadly defined, has been most useful to pro-democracy practitioners.
· Reflect around consultation regarding practitioner-oriented learning & research strategies: Explore and assess possible niche strategies for bringing democratization and power analysis to the T/A agenda in ways that would be useful to reform strategists, including practitioner-to-practitioner dialogue/exchanges, researcher-practitioner dialogues and/or targeted research partnerships focused on an issue not addressed by current initiatives.
