Participatory Research: What Is It and How Can It Strengthen Your Reentry Program Evaluation?


Participatory Research brief coverThis resource brief from the Evaluation and Sustainability Training and Technical Assistance (ES TTA) team at RTI International and the Center for Court Innovation provides an overview of participatory research and discusses different ways that reentry programs can engage impacted populations (e.g., formerly incarcerated persons, past program participants) in the evaluation of their programs.

The brief also summarizes key benefits of this approach, potential challenges and how to navigate them, and examples of successful implementation.
