Abstract

This chapter explores the process of evaluating the individual and collective view of participation in a Participatory Action Research (PAR) project carried out by an adult researcher and five young researchers. The PAR framework enabled a commitment to continuous information sharing, reflection and action. The process of evaluating participation on three occasions empowered the team to reflect on the reciprocal relationship that developed between the adult and the young researchers. The study acknowledges participation as fluid and dynamic. Furthermore, recognising that power can be shared between adult and young researchers, is crucial to the development of reciprocal relationships in research.
