Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this paper we present a way of thinking which clarifies concepts of participation across not only diverse design areas but across other disciplines, allowing clearer comparisons and cross-referencing. It should facilitate more productive building of a knowledge base around participation concepts. We suggest that Design is the best field to lead on this.
