Most models and frameworks for community-based participatory research are constructed from a largely academic perspective. This presentation turns that traditional perspective on its head and investigates how a truly community-driven policy research framework could be developed to address the most fundamental needs and concerns of community members: the need for action-oriented research that leads to dramatic and fairly immediate changes in community capacity to effect change.

Learning Objectives:
