Knowledge from the margins

‘Knowledge from the Margins: An anthology from a global network on participatory practice and policy influence’ is a collection of their critical reflections on participatory approaches to influencing policy – including the engagement with the post-2015 process.

This Anthology shares the journey of Participate so far and within this, our attempts to shift power in policymaking. As we move forward, it is a tool to help promote thought and discussion about how to use participatory approaches to influence policy at a variety of levels lessons on what has worked and what as not. The purpose of sharing this experience is to:

  • Share insights and lessons we have learned to help promote thought and discussion about how to use participatory approaches to influence policy at a variety of levels. This includes lessons on what has worked and what as not.
  • Give others ideas of how the voices of those
 who are marginalised can be amplified.
  • Provoke action to bring policymakers and people living in poverty together face-to-face.
  • Provide recommendations for future practitioners, advocates and supporters of participatory research for policy influence, based on our experience.
