Il existe diverses manières de relier la recherche et l’action. On doit à ce propos poser au moins deux questions :
À qui sert la recherche-action ?
Que devient le savoir dans la recherche-action ?
Research-action or knowledge for action?
There are various ways to link research to action. We should ask ourselves at least two questions: (1) in whose interests is R-A? (2) What happens to knowledge produced by R-A?One must begin by analysing the allegiances of the researcher in an attempt to determine on what conditions his own interests and concerns may come into conflict with those of the group with which he is working. Secondly, there must be some kind of a contractual relationship that can be democratically controlled.Can action and research fuse together? What happens to the knowledge produced? Without a relatively independent status for knowledge, is there not a danger of losing the critical contribution of reason and experience? Without this contribution are we not in danger of reintroducing the arbitrary nature of the research and researcher back into the process of producing knowledge?
