New Participatory Research Manual Focused on Domestic Workers Released

The Research Network for Domestic Worker Rights (RN-DWR) recently released a “A Participatory Research Manual on How Domestic Workers and Researchers can Jointly Conduct Research.” The goal of the project is to empower domestic workers by training them to conduct research on the issues that affect them.  By creating a step-by-step guide through all phases of the research process (research design, implementation, and analysis), the authors sought to  “address the frequent experiences of domestic workers who have been ‘studied’ by researchers who often demand time, ask difficult and intimate questions, and rarely return their results or give back to the domestic workers and their organizations.” The research manual can be downloaded here.
