In this chapter we argue that two significant governing principles of collaborative inquiry (CI) are the notions of reciprocity and authenticity. Through both these principles, individualsand communities can become empowered to understand, produce knowledge and bring about active positive change in their own lives. We describe and analyse the roles of reciprocity and authenticity in collaborative inquiry, exploring issues of power and ethics as they relate to the epistemological and methodological foundations of CI research.
