New modes of knowledge production and de-colonising research are two key organising themes for a series of four workshops on community-based participatory research. These workshops alert participants to how both ‘traditional’ (surveys, interviews) and more ‘innovative’ (photovoice, the facilitation of creative writing) social science research methods can be adopted within the context of community-based participatory research.


The workshops will be delivered by leading academics, activists, and practitioners who rely on participatory research methodology to research with seldom-heard communities in the UK and internationally.

These events are organised by Dr Kiril Sharapov ( and are hosted by the Migration and Mobilities Research Network at Edinburgh Napier University. This series is supported by the Scottish Graduate School of Social Sciences (SGSSS) through the SGSSS’s Pathway Training Fund.
