Introduction to the Dialogues Series
Leila Baker, head of research at IVAR, explains that the Empowered Communities in the 2020s research will be structured through a series of dialogues.
- Dialogue: Issues – Exploring issues that intersect with community development and empowered communities, such as income inequality, local ageing populations, housing, immigration or climate change.
- Dialogue: Nations – Visiting four nations in the UK to hear from people who work with communities regardless of whether or not they have a community development remit as such.
- Dialogue: Places – Conversations in four communities of place, to hear from people who work with, or in some way support communities — regardless of whether or not they have a community development remit.
