Course summary

Explore the challenges of power relations, participation and citizen engagement – and what it means to facilitate change processes in pursuit of social justice.

We’ve designed our MA for experienced practitioners and social activists. It combines coursework with work-based learning and action research.

You will:

  • critically reflect on your own practice
  • learn about different conceptual and methodological approaches to participation
  • develop your analysis and facilitation skills to engage with change processes at various levels.

A core component of this course is the four-month period of work-based action learning. You'll examine your own practice and that of your host organisation or social process, seeking to apply your learning in a beneficial way.

This course is taught at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS).
