Abstract

Participation of native community in fulfilling their needs and resources has been known to enhance empowerment. The main focus of this research is to understand the world view of Bidayuh on participation and empowerment in community development. This study adopts the interpretative approach based on abductive logic from the perspective of an idealist ontology and constructionist epistemology. The findings show that the participation perceived by the Bidayuh community is imited not only at the implementation level, but also involves other levels such as planning, evaluation and monitoring. Meanwhile, their perception of empowerment refers to a process whereby individuals or groups are at the stage where they are capable of using their own ability, capability and self-capacity. The implication of this study is that greater engagement with the Bidayuh community on the part of the government agencies will go a long way in understanding the Bidayuh's participation needs and their eventual individual empowerment.
