The art of facilitating participation: unlearning old habits and learning new ones (PLA Notes 48)

Lydia Braakman

Journal article

Participation is a common component of many development projects, but how do you ensure that the people facilitating the participation are doing a good job? In this article the author reflects on experiences at the Regional Community Forest Training Centre in Thailand, teaching participation to people who often viewed themselves as skilled facilitators.

Participatory Learning and Action is the world’s leading informal journal on participatory approaches. Guest editors provide up-to-the minute accounts of participatory approaches in specific fields. Since 1987, PLA has provided a forum for participatory practitioners – community workers, activists and researchers – to share experiences, reflections and methodological innovations with others, providing a genuine ‘voice from the field’.
