        Recently, many psychosocial researcher-practitioners have touted “community-based participatory research” (CBPR) as an innovative and inclusive methodology for addressing stakeholder equity and engagement related to social & civic programs intending to lessen health disparities; however, I question if this way of relating and working together really fundamentally changes epistemic hierarchies and decision making powers . Is it really a new wine or just a new wine bottle?

See: The only project to date that this writer could find that actually seeks to fully address this

We suspect that in order to sustainably address the limitations endemic to the exclusive nature of academic research and professional practice, we need to reflect upon and adapt our ways of relating  to learning and knowledge such that we function to lessen epistemic injustices within and across all interactions. When we can fairly, openly, and critically evaluate phenomena such as “the world” and “ourselves”, we can optimize our collective capacities to integrate & communicate information. This naturally mediates more effective solutions.
