Interactive Knowledge: Research and PracticeCollaboration for Sustainable Development

2011 (English)In: Local Development and Creative Industries: empirical, methodological and theoretical reflections / [ed] Conny Pettersson, Dorit Christensen, Visby: Gotland University , 2011, p. 225-252Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This chapter discusses the extent to which researchers ought to become involved in local efforts at achieving sustainable development. Local development gives rise to normative reflections on the past, present and future. The question is whether scientists and scholars can or even ought to participate in these deliberations. If so, then a new kind of researcher must emerge, and three possibilities are discussed: distanced, close and interactive, and one in which the relationship between theory and practise need to be revised. The discussion was spawned by the United Nations’ concept of sustainable thinking and the role it gives the researcher. Via a discussion on how the role of the researcher is treated in the scholarly literature, a conclusion in favour of an interactive role results. The chapter offers a model of ”sustainability practise” for how researchers and practitioners can create interactive knowledge together, reinforcing the specific roles of both actors in the process.
