Short Abstract:

Co-producing knowledge and action can increase representation of urban marginalised people. The workshop introduces community based participatory research approaches from the Accountability and Responsiveness in Informal Settlements for Equity Hub. Participants jointly reflect on these approaches.

Long Abstract:

Co-producing knowledge and action can increase representation, dismantle existing power hierarchies, and decolonise knowledge production. Co-production acknowledges that expertise lies not only with academics but also with directly impacted communities and can effectively advance social justice issues. This workshop encourages reflexivity on co-production processes in development research and action - what works well, tensions around power and equity, and how these are navigated in spaces of respect and trust to learn from vulnerable populations and shape new practices for research and action. It will introduce approaches from the Accountability and Responsiveness in Informal Settlements for Equity (ARISE) consortium from Bangladesh, India, Kenya, and Sierra Leone that strengthen capacities and representation of urban marginalised people and generate evidence and action grounded in context.
