Is the rise of community-based research part of a paradigmatic shift in the way research is conducted? Dr. Atalay considers this as she discusses the principles of community-based participatory research and demonstrates how she's applied them in five collaborative projects in Turkey and Native North America. Partnering with communities to do anthropological research poses tremendous opportunities alongside complex challenges. It is, at times, a risky, even life-threatening endeavor. Dr. Atalay considers the challenges, presents some of the benefits of doing community-based research, and presents ethical dilemmas involved in planning and carrying out anthropological research using a community-based approach.
