Productive Margins logo Copyrighted image Icon Copyright: Productive Margins Productive Margins: Regulation for Engagement describes itself as a "new and exciting programme of research [which] asks: What would happen if diverse communities and academics came together to re-shape engagement, to work creatively with ideas that touch on society, law, history and art? Can research release the creativity, knowledge and passions of communities at the margins of power to co-produce new forms of engagement and decision-making?"

It was initiated by researchers, scientists & educators and encourages people to participate through research & learning. Productive Margins: Regulation for Engagement is local in orientation and concerned with neighbourhood & community and research, knowledge production & information access.

It was launched in April 2013 and is ongoing.
