Action Research

Context has a solid track record in conducting research. We conduct research within the realm of social business and civil society. Within our project delivery we aim to complete the entire research process from planning, data collection, and application up until dissemination of our findings.

Our approach to research is based on deep systematic inquiry and reflection. We believe that action research is a social process.

In all our works we place high value on professional research expertise and we uphold the belief that every case is unique, faces unique challenge and is embedded in a unique environmental context.

We offer four research related services that can be tailored to meet your needs:

Research & Reporting – We undertake research at the local, national and international level and are able to provide a plethora of outputs ranging from case studies and practical guides to comprehensive research reports.

Knowledge brokering – Through knowledge transfer and exchange we aim to improve the innovative capability of organisations. From our past experience we have found this process of knowledge brokering to improve evidence-led decision-making and foster an environment of longer-term co-creation.

Applied learning – Action research is a social process. Our clients are embedded in the research process to ensure that discourse encourages organisational learning. This leads to an improved and well-informed decision-making process.

Dissemination support – Research findings need to be shared. We are able to provide high quality reports, organise workshops and joint-learning exercises to increase the reach of your research outcomes. Our consultants are experienced in presenting and discussing data to small and large audiences.
