The impetus for peace studies to make a collaborative turn: towards community collaborative research

Alison M S Watson, Bennett Collins

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter focusses upon the value of a collaborative community research approach within peace research and in particular upon the work that the authors are undertaking with Indigenous activists and community organizers in North America and in East Africa. Using original case studies that focus upon moving the rights of Indigenous Peoples[1] forward, and drawn from fieldwork in a range of geographic areas, this chapter outlines a praxis arguing that the research process can only document and examine what takes place in communities that are seeking to address conflict by researchers actually being present within those communities, and by them then engaging as much as is possible with those communities as a whole.
