The Guild for Social Fieldwork is an initiative of Economics for Peace Institute to network practitioners and share resources. Starting in 2023, Economics for Peace Institute will offer membership in the Guild.
If the initiative is a success, the Guild will be composed of people conducting social fieldwork in their place-based communities or as a service for hire by place-based communities.
The Institute makes accessible resources for doing social fieldwork. Social fieldwork is grassroots social science to inform community and regional planning. Through the Guild, the Institute plans to connect practitioners of social fieldwork, participatory action research, participatory learning and action, and other qualitative research methods foundational to the social sciences.
