'Praxis ... remains one of the largest proponents of PRA networking through their biannual (sic) PRA thematic workshops… These practitioners' networks, as I learned later, were a very important strategy for the spread of out and were also mechanisms for facilitating reflections and learning to ensure good practice of participatory methods. Robert (Chambers) was very passionate about them…'
Quoted from Networking: Building a Global Movement for PRA and other Participatory Methods by Samuel Musembi Musyoki in Revolutionizing Development: Reflections on the work of Robert Chambers (2011) ed. Andrea Cornwall and Ian Scoones.
The thematic workshop is an annual residential event that brings together development workers, policy makers and proactive individuals from across the world to learn, share and grow in the field of participatory development.
