This collection tackles the issues raised by academic engagement with political activism, with a particular focus on local activism in the Americas and Asia. As the contributors to this volume stress, politically engaged research can have a meaningful impact on social activism. But such engagement also presents a number of problems for the researcher on the ground.With case studies span countries ranging from Canada and Brazil to Sri Lanka and Indonesia, as well as such diverse issues as migration, agribusiness and the value of new research methods such as participatory film-making, this collection shows that research which properly engages with local activism can play a positive role in these movements, and help to enhance the social and political prospects of struggling communities.
