|Abstract:||Health inequalities is considered a ‘wicked’ problem with the understanding of the problem that health inequalities poses subject to interacting causes and uncertain means of resolution of how to act within policy, organisations and academic debate. This paper focuses on a 5 year COR project and a healthy living centre partnership within a probation system and the messy issues that it represents. It explores how the notion of the practitioner/researcher entwines with concepts of research/action with the role of the OR participant constantly negotiated and questioned within the process. Ultimately it questions who the expert is and what is the problem that needs to be solved?|
