This is a list of topics that were hightlighted as possible areas for discussion during the meeting in Ann Arbor, but were considered to be of lower priority than the ‘top six’ discussion points, each of which recieved its own discussion page. We (Dorothea & Andy) are hoping to draft responses on these issues that will deal with the primary controversies, but we would still welcome input / debate on these:
- Should participatory methods be mandatory? Should communities be given a choice whether they would like participatory methods to be used?
- Who chooses methods and how should methods be chosen?
- What are the limits of respect for local cultural norms (participant used the example of FGM) ? Where are the limits of cultural relativism?
If you would like to comment on these questions, please leave your comments on this page.
