Guild for Social Fieldwork

Economics for Peace Institute promotes participatory research through demonstration projects, experiential training and a web-based information portal; the portal connects the social network of fieldwork practitioners through user-driven contributions. The Institute advances neutral, science-based, participatory research strategies. Through participatory action research, local people engage in meaningful self-discovery for the purpose of reaching common goals. We teach locals and planners participatory strategies such as ethnography, participant observation, the dynamics of relaxed small group reflection and rigorous qualitative research.
