ENGAGE aims to support the research engagement of people affected by social inequalities, precariousness or poverty, social exclusion and low literacy, and to reduce barriers between university research and community members.
This website contains a wealth of information that can help community members and researchers better understand the basics of participatory research. It proposes participatory and visual methods that can encourage the participation of populations that are often excluded from more traditional research designs.
Participatory research is an increasingly popular tool among health professionals and researchers, allowing them to study complex problems and interventions in our society, such as social and health issues.
It is not a specific research method, but rather an approach that is applicable to any research or study process, whether quantitative or qualitative.
This section presents participatory methods that can promote the engagement of populations that are often excluded from more traditional research specifications. These methods include Problem tree, Mapping, River of life, Digital storytelling, Walking methodologies, Photo-novella, Photovoice, and Podcast.
There are several advantages to using such methods, particularly in research involving people affected by social inequalities, precariousness or poverty, social exclusion, and low literacy
