Apply: E.A.R. can be used in the planning and evaluation of community development programs. a community forum can be the place for E.A.R. to enfold, as it can bring people together, provide an umbrella organization for community activism, provide a platform for debate, provide education for democratic practice, act as a pressure group, organize leisure and cultural activities, manage a community center, provide a voice to the community (Ledwith, 2005, p. 86). the community forum can become the point of start for community change, and the planning that goes into developing community programs can be a process of learning, awareness raising and empowerment.
Adapt: this type of research could be of great use to advocacy anthropology. anthropologists that choose to " go native" and become the spokes persons for the groups of people they have studied run the risk of disempowering the people the represent at the same time that they try to raise outside awareness to the struggles of the group. practicing E.A.R could prevent this while at the same time helping to bring about social change.
