'Context': a case for common sense : reflections on constructing a wetland system in rural Rajasthan, India
MetadataShow full item record
I spent several months with an organisation in rural Rajasthan, India addressing the topic of sanitation, which resulted in the construction of a wetland system. These are reflections on the process. Throughout this process it became clear that the challenge with sanitation lies not in its technical side, but its human side. The challenge lies with people; both with ‘the other’ and with yourself. Instead relying on any method, theory or previous knowledge, I make a case for using common sense and open-mindedness in doing research, as an aid to see each situation anew in its proper context.
