Title Social science and participation
Description
  • <p>This unit explores how social science helps to inform and shape public debates and policy-making processes. It introduces the idea that the descriptions (measurements, dates and representations) and understandings (concepts, explanations, theories and interpretations) developed by social scientists contribute to actually <i>making</i> the social worlds we live in. In other words, social science helps to make visible (or <i>describe</i>) social phenomena, and make sense of (or <i>understand</i>) social processes. In doing so, it makes a difference to the social worlds it investigates (it helps to<i> enact </i>them). </p><p>This unit is an adapted extract from the Open University course DD206, <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/course/dd206.htm">The Uses of Social Science</a></span>.</p>

  • This free course, Social science and participation, looks at how social science investigates participation, and uses this topic to look in particular at how social science helps to enact social worlds. As you work through the course, you will see that social science enactment of participation is closely related to social science descriptions of, for example, voting or other citizenly practices, and related also to social science understandings of, for example, just how to define and evaluate poverty. <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/people-politics-law/social-science-and-participation/content-section-0" /> First published on Wed, 16 Dec 2015 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/people-politics-law/social-science-and-participation/content-section-0">Social science and participation</a>.
