The tools, software and theoretical insights of the SAS2 Dialogue approach have been applied and adapted to a wide range of settings and topics. These include: community economic development, workplace organization, educational reform and evaluation, local governance over land and natural resources, forest conflict, public sector planning, and many more. The results range from better understanding and management of specific problems to comprehensive plans for change based on in-depth assessments of opportunities and stakeholders in complex situations. The stories attest to the effectiveness and efficiency of collaborative inquiry in helping people do better planning, evaluation, and research.
We're proud to showcase many of these results in case studies of various lengths through a Repository hosted by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The Repository includes reports on a single event or assessment, reports on a series of assessments conducted over time, and detailed plans or research protocols designed for particular contexts. Various full length M.A. and PhD theses are also published to the Repository.
To find a document of interest to you, search the Repository using subject key words such as "Canada", "International Development", "Public Engagement", etc. The reports are also searchable by tool name (eg. "Causal Dynamics"), title, author, date and many other subject fields. Reports in Spanish, French, Nepali and Bangla also populate the Repository of the SAS2 Community of Practice.
Also see the publications page on this site.
