    Abstract

    This introduction to the themed special issue raises provocative questions about the nature and meaning of co‐production by engaging specifically with voices from the margins – groups and individuals who occupy marginalised embodied subjectivities. Key themes emerging from the papers raise questions about the nature and meaning of co‐production. We suggest a need to move away from a focus on co‐production or even participation towards empowerment and inclusivity. We urge researchers to be explicit about the meaning of the terms “participation” or “co‐production” to think critically about the “communities” with whom we research and how research forges positive social change.
