Academia in Public Discourse Poland-Russia: Expanding the Breathing Space
The Project involves launching joint Polish-Russian working teams of young people from academic circles and NGOs under a methodological approach called “Participatory Action Research”. The objective of these working teams would be to shape a new generation of academics, who would be open to cooperation with community leaders and would have an innovative approach to scientific research, learning and teaching. We would like to emphasize that although our ideas have a lot in common with the well-known tradition of “participatory action research” as a way of engaged inquiry, our project has unique background and is based on the following understanding of community work and collaboration presented below.
