This chapter focuses on assessing the implications and applications of a social citizenship lens for research practices in the area of dementia studies. It evaluates the ways in which some of the components of citizenship, namely meaningful participation and freedom from discrimination, might be located or realised in the different phases of designing, conducting, and/or using social research. It argues for a broader, more ambitious vision in association with the process of locating, designing, conducting, and disseminating and using social research. Using the heuristic framework of EXPECT, it discusses the essential elements of the research process in a way that brings a social citizenship lens to the fore.

Keywords: social citizenship; dementia; discrimination; social research; heuristic framework; EXPECT
