Evaluating the research partnership process
in Knowledge, democracy and action

This chapter seeks to define partnership research. It focuses on evaluation of the partnership research process, an undertaking distinguished from analysis of the larger process in which partnership research takes place. Finally, a partnership research evaluation model, based on the partnership research model developed by the Alliance de recherche universites-communautes en economie sociale (ARUC-ES) and the Reseau quebecois de recherche partenariale en economie sociale (RQRP-ES), was proposed. Partnership research is defined by three essential steps or phases: the co-definition of research goals; the co-implementation of the research project; and the mobilization of the resulting knowledge. Primarily, the partnership research evaluation model is targeted at the participants in partnership research, to give them tools with which to reflect on their partnership research experience and identify areas for improvement.
