Abstract

Traditionally, researches on groups that suffer inequalities have not taken into account their voices in the research process. For this reason, they arrive to conclusions that have led to the reproduction of social exclusion in which they are living. The communicative research methodology encourages the participation of these social groups in all the research stages. This participation in the research process is built through an egalitarian and intersubjective dialogue. The accumulated scientific knowledge provided by researchers meets in this dialogue with the contributions from the life world of social actors, leading to transform situations of social inequality that people belonging to these groups are suffering. In this article we will also show how communicative research methodology is obtaining greater political and social impact from the research results.
