Abstract
This study examines participatory communication for development from a communication perspective. The purpose of this study is to elaborate on communicationís central position in creating, maintaining and enacting participation. I use a social construction perspective to analyze and elaborate on participatory communication for development. Implications for both the practice and the theory of participatory communication emerged from the analysis. Implications include the theoretical elaboration of dialogue, process, trust, and knowledge as informed by communication theory as well as practical suggestions for facilitation and responses to common critiques of participatory approaches to development.

The range and variety of development initiatives in Vietnam was astounding. Development jargon rolled off most tongues with ease and frequency: poverty reduction women‚Äôs empowerment participatory development sustainable development. My
