[Extract] Getting action research right requires more than a moral undertaking to do justice to the research recipient. It entails more than finding a set of willing participants, working with them, evaluating one's activities and noting change within the research setting/participants or even within oneself. Action research needs also to entail a level of intellectual honesty that seizes opportunities to make visible the most marginalised. Silent hegemonies can express themselves in attitudes, ideologies, idiosyncrasies, customs and cultural practices, maintaining oppression at unconscious and subjective levels and awareness of their impact can remain hidden from view.
