Bringing community members to the table with the community-engaged research: Opinion


In a recent article for Times Higher Education, Tara Mahoney (Simon Fraser University) and Scott Neufeld (Brock University) explain the importance of community-engaged research and share their experience in using it. The authors explain that this type of research “makes space for communities to work in partnership with academic researchers,” ensuring that those most affected by a particular research problem are at the table in a decision-making capacity. Mahoney and Neufeld highlight examples of the use of community-engaged research in British Columbia, before sharing several resources for researchers looking to incorporate these practices into their own work.
