Abstract

Research and public engagement operate in a wider social environment. More information or better dissemination will not simply make social problems go away. Leah Bassel suggests embedding research into mutually reinforcing partnerships with communities facing inequality and misrepresentation as an invigorating approach to engagement. Research can be made to work for the public good by working with – and not speaking in the place of – these groups.
