PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE: PROJECT EVALUATION
Any type of content formally published in an academic journal, usually following a peer-review process.
This report critically evaluates this project’s processes and outputs (the film), and pays particular attention to the efficacy of the community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach that informed the project’s methodology. The CBPR approach was chosen to enhance genuine and meaningful collaboration between project partners, with a view to creating a film that could overcome some of the inherent communication barriers that diminishes the effectiveness of mainstream CFA information for Karen and other newly arrived refugee groups. Accordingly, this project composes a film that merges expert (CFA) knowledge with that of the Karen community: experts on their communication preferences and contexts in which fire safety and prevention issues arise.
