Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, we describe a model of research practise that addresses epistemic
injustice as a central objective, by valuing lived experience and addressing
structural disadvantages. We set out here the processes we undertook, and
the experiences of those involved in an attempt to transform research practise
within a study known as Co-pact. We do not discuss the findings of the research.
Rather, we wish to build expertise on how to address epistemic injustice and
offer examples of participatory research processes, central values, and practical
procedures that we implemented.
