Social learning in Asia

This project has grown out of the learning that "command and control" policy and management are insufficient in enabling change processes that are responsive to manifest vulnerabilities in contexts that are uncertain, complex and controversial.

Action research and soft systems methodologies are used to frame development interventions, capacity building, facilitation and networking and thus change processes.

By enabling iterations between development practice, observation and reflection we are building theory, methods, approaches and capacity connected to social learning, management and governance, with vulnerability as point of departure.
