REFLECTIVE PEACEBUILDING PRACTICE AS PRACTICAL/PARTICIPATORY ACTION RESEARCH

This chapter is based on an action research project which consists of a practical action research phase as defined by Denscombe, 2010:6, and a proposed participatory action research and writing phase. The second phase described here, was part of PhD research, and is in the process of being followed up with parallel writing and participatory action research phases in which peacebuilding practitioners and officials will be involved. It will take the form of Paulo Freire style workshops with the triple function of learning and teaching based on the findings and recommendations of the second phase, and action research activities. During the second phase, research activities focused on a particular peacebuilding problem encountered within a particular peacebuilding context (first phase) and are discussed next.
