Merging of Knowledge

Based on the conviction that people living in poverty are carriers of essential knowledge to eradicate poverty, the ATD Fourth World Movement has developed new pedagogy and methodology in a work between academics, social intervention professionals and people living in poverty. They make it possible to bring out and take into account the speech and the thought that people in extreme poverty draw from their experience, and to co-produce new knowledge by crossing different knowledge: academic knowledge, knowledge of action and knowledge from experience.

In Quebec, several research projects are carried out in partnership with universities, and are inspired by the approach of Crossing Knowledge and Practices.
