Learning from Poor People’s Lives: Immersions

Published on 1 January 2004

This paper is about the practice and the potential of immersions. Immersions are occasions when professionals learn directly from encounters with poor and marginalised people by living with them and reflecting on the experience. Those taking part may be the staff of bilateral and multilateral agencies, diplomats, parliamentarians, Government officials, NGO staff, academics, or other development professionals.
