Co-creation - suggesting and scoping issues to be researched, putting together joint research proposals and funding bids
Co-production - jointly delivering the research, for example by collectively designing research tools and using these to carry out, for example surveys, interviews, or workshops, within their communities
Co-critique - reviewing together the data emerging from research, deciding on methods of analysis, adding context and editing each others’ work
Co-use - deciding collectively the best format to share the insights emerging from research, for example through open access tools or reports, or running events, and disseminating these through our respective networks, so they reach a wide audience and can actively inform practice in the common good land movement
Given the many competing demands on people’s time, and the constraints of funding application processes, not everyone may want to be, or practically can be, involved in all stages in all research projects, however, we try to ensure that people have as many opportunities to become as involved in research as possible. We will be actively reflecting on and further developing this approach as we take on new research work.
