Please join us for this upcoming RISE Reading Group discussion. Research Impact & Societal Engagement (RISE) is a theme in the RMIT Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences for Health Network. Our reading this month will be “The politics of co-production: participation, power, and transformation,” by Turnhout et al. (2021) (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cosust.2019.11.009).
Co-production is increasingly adopted by researchers wanting to address power imbalances in research. However, it is challenging to implement. What are your experiences in navigating the political and power dimensions of conducting co-produced research? If you are new to co-production, what are your biggest concerns?
