Louise Fortmann's research is on the politics and practice of participatory research. It is part of her larger interest on the democratization of science. Her current work approaches the question of the democratization of science through the lens of the practice and politics of participatory research. Presently she is collaborating with conventional biophysical and social scientists who have done successful (in their minds) participatory research. Their account of the research process and outcome is compared with that of the participating civil scientists.
