A Report of the Learning Exchange Research Project. This report presents a model of Participatory Action Research (PAR) focused on the development of the third sector in Israel. The PAR methodology, combined with a learning exchange, intentional reflection, and community building opportunities, was used as a tool for enhancing Haifa Non-Governmental Organizations’ (NGO) capacities. The report describes the practical and conceptual impacts of this model's application in a pilot trial and discusses its possible use and importance for future participatory research and NGO capacity building work.


Authored by Donna Haig Friedman and Jennifer Cohen with Yael Abada, Rula Deeb, Riki Tegave, Daphna Ziv, Marina Zamsky, and Tiffany Bradley, Liron Peleg-Hadomi, Eran Hadomi, and Moran Ron.
