Week 10—About them, but not without them

Main reading: Francis et al. (2023); Salinger et al. (2024)

We will discuss how to approach this topic in class. The assigned and recommended works are examples of participatory development. On the basis of our previous discussions we can consider what this kind of approach to social programs might entail and what it means for politics.
