The need for interdisciplinarity: a community-based participatory action research project with forced migrant youth

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract

The chapter begins by providing a brief overview of the disciplinary/interdisciplinary debate, before introducing how an inter-disciplinary approach is used to inform a community based participatory action research (CBPAR) project. Four key aspects are used to make the case for an interdisciplinary approach: problem-focused, complexity, objectivity/subjectivity, and the concept of verstehen. Each aspect is related to how an interdisciplinary CBPAR project can engage refugee and asylum seeking youth in the search for a more nuanced under-standing to how they may be supported as they immerse themselves within a new community.
