    Abstract

    This Note discusses current and prospective research into understandings of Participatory Action Research (PAR) and its relationship to the development of inclusive and pluralistic forms of Information and Knowledge Management (IKM) in ICT4D/ICTD contexts through the Oxfam Australia-Monash University Partnership. It is intended that an innovative demonstration project to trial new ways of implementing PAR & pluralistic IKM will be then be undertaken with international development NGOs with an aim to more widespread adoption of these techniques.
