Abstract: Listening is a radical act in research exercise for it is done not so much for confirmations of the researchers’ opinion, but for refutation. This has to be read in the background of how participatory approaches have been used by many development agencies and researchers to confirm their frameworks rather than radically challenge them. The boring uniformity of conclusions arrived at by PPA studies about the perceptions of poverty across the globe, despite the expansive multidimensionality, only buttresses our argument that, if they had been conducted with listening as a value they would have led to the breakdown of many paradigms on poverty rather than presenting them as manageable data.
