Korte omschrijving vacature:For 12 weeks, March/April/May 2018, you will be part of a multidisciplinary research team to conduct Participatory Action Research (PAR) in Mfuwe Zambia. PAR does not offer the solution but creates a platform for all involved to come together and think about the root causes of the problem and possible solutions that can be put into action. As a PAR-researcher you facilitate in this process by offering different creative methods that triggers stakeholders to think outside the box and look at the situation from different angles. The outcome of this process is an action plan that benefits everyone.
In the first weeks, you will be offered a couple of workshops in research design, data gathering and data analyses within Participatory Action Research. These workshops allow you to be involved in the designing process and to look at how we can incorporate your personal developing goals or specific requirements set for your study program requirements.
