This book focuses on participatory capacity-building in ways that address the practical needs and strategic interests of the disadvantaged and disempowered - it examines how differences in class, ethnicity, race, caste, religion, age and gender lead to the politics of exclusion. It offers innovative, accessible tools to enable facilitators from both inside and outside communities to empower those who are frequently omitted from decision-making processes. The style and approach are interactive, stimulating reflection and involvement by all parties.
