Citizen Social Science: a promising approach for more participation in knowledge production and decision making
Deliverable #2.5: Policy Brief on Opportunities and Challenges of Citizen Social Science
Experiences from three years of Co-designing Citizen Social Science for Collective Action (CoAct)
This policy brief provides policymakers, civil society organisations and research performing institutions with recommendations on how to use Citizen Social Science to support and shape social change. It offers an introduction to the approach and lays out the benefits and challenges experienced. It is based on the outcomes of the international research project CoAct funded by the European Union that implements and reflects participatory research methods and their impacts in different settings and regions.
