Brief

Paradigms, Poverty and Adaptive Pluralism

Published on 15 September 2010

This paper explores participatory methodologies (PMs) associated with a paradigm of people, contrasted with a dominant paradigm associated with things. A paradigm of adaptive and participatory pluralism embodies ideas and practices of reflexivity, continuous learning, values, improvisation, co-evolution and emergence. It offers win-win solutions and generates an agenda for action.
