Report from the Conference on Participation and Power, Aalborg University/Copenhagen, Denmark, 05-07.06.2013

Dear reader,

At the symposium, it was decided that we - Marianne and Jorgen - were to organise a conference at Aalborg University/Copenhagen, Denmark. It took place in June 2013, with the title Participation and Power (www.participation-power.aau.dk).

As an introduction to the conference, we edited a special issue of the International Journal of Action Research, 9(1) in 2013.

At the conference, the following keynotes were presented and discussed:

- Danilo Streck: Knowledge, Power and Participation: Research Notes on Participatory Budgeting in South Brazil

- Danny Burns, Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex, Brighton, UK: Participation versus Power? …
