The Politics of Research

After reading this really long document, you can see that politics may play a role in research like everything else. Its true that money is what funds these projects that are then put into different of scopes, based on the group interests. So what ever may seem to be the important issues at hand, that would were most of the resources be funneled into. Than you have smaller groups that may not have the luxury to research in something that is not a priority to hierarchy above. But there are alternative to continue to do personal or community base work. Having different options such as community groups to carry out ‘community research ‘ makes sense. Also having professionals do independent research that doesn’t require a great deal of funding may have its advantages.
