UNHCR picks up the narrative approach!


20140804-101653-37013024.jpg

During the conference in Oxford , I participated at the UNHCR Innovation’s design workshop. We were handed narratives and asked to analyze them in order to some rapid prototyping experiments. I am happy to see that they are also applying a narrative approach (possibly from visiting my workshops?) , and am hoping for the possibility to include their experiences with this approach in my research.
