The aim of this chapter is to discuss empowering dialogues as an example of how Interactive Research can create democratic settings for knowledge production. Interactive Research is a tradition within the broader concept of Action Research that stresses the involvement of the participants in the research process-from the defi nition of the research problems to the analysis and dissemination of results (Larsson 2006; Reason & Bradbury 2001; Svensson et al. 2002). However, this is easier said than done. As has been discussed within gender research, democracy in knowledge production cannot be understood without refl ecting on ways to create non-hierarchical relations between the researcher and participants and to see the participants as active subjects in the knowledge production (Davies & Esseveld 1989; Gunnarsson 2006).
