  • The Transition movement as politics and pedagogy in communities
    • Authors: McGregor C; Crowther J.
      Pages: 8 - 24
      Abstract: Previous contributors to the CDJ have already critically appraised tensions within the Transition approach by examining its tacit assumptions about community (Transitioning communities: community, participation and the Transition Towns movement, Community Development Journal, 46(4), pp. 558–572.) and its political economy (The political economy of localization in the Transition movement, Community Development Journal, 50(2), pp. 213–326.). We add to this work by analysing how the movement's cultural politics frames its pedagogical approach. We analyse the Transition movement's pedagogy in the wider context of theoretical arguments about ‘post-politics’. Its pedagogy aims to mould new subjectivities that are commensurate with the energy descent plan of the movement. Central to its approach is the way in which its collective identity has been carefully crafted as distinct from the wider environmental movement in order to generate public appeal. The movement's focus on local community as a site of consensus rather than conflict, descent rather than dissent, resilience rather than resistance, are central to its curriculum. In this respect, the Transition movement builds on what can be useful and valuable in the language of ‘community’, whilst at the same time embodying, or perhaps even amplifying, its limitations and omissions.

      Pages: 25 - 41
      Abstract: This article examines the complexities of local community development initiatives within a particular South African context, which of Kenneth Gardens, a low-income housing estate in Durban. The interface between community development, state politics (at a local and national level) and networked arrangements are discussed through the experiences of working on the Kenneth Gardens Community Project. The negative impact of political interference within local community development projects such as this one can lead to apathy and paralysis. We argue that this frequent interference in South Africa narrows spaces for meaningfully practicing democracy at a grass-roots level. However, local community dynamics and networks are also important factors to consider. As in the case examined in this article, these dynamics and networks ensure that development partnerships outside of the state are not completely immobilised or derailed.

  • Participatory exclusion of women in natural resource management: silent
           voices from wetland communities in Bangladesh
    • Authors: Choudhury M; Haque C, Habib S.
      Pages: 42 - 60
      Abstract: In Bangladesh, women are generally excluded from participatory management of natural resources, despite such activities being widely considered by policymakers and decision makers as gender-neutral processes. In this context, we seek to examine the participatory exclusion of women from collective management of natural resources in wetland communities. As we consider ‘agency’ to be central to understanding collective action, an analysis of agency dynamics is the primary focus of our research. Drawing upon Bourdieu's theory of field, capital, and habitus and Giddens’ notion of agency, an examination of structure and voice, and emotionality as the two primary factors affecting agency is emphasized. The findings of our investigation of a development project reveal that women in local communities often exclude themselves from participatory institutions due to family endowment and their limited ability to cope with hegemonic norms (i.e. habitus). They are also excluded by powerful social forces due to the generally subjugated class position and status of women in Bangladeshi culture. However, women with significant cultural capital and social networks hold relatively higher positions within the society and are better able to exercise their agency.

  • Community participation for sustainable rural development: revisiting
           South Korean rural modernization of the 1970s
    • Authors: Yang Y.
      Pages: 61 - 77
      Abstract: This study examines (potential) power dynamics during the period of the rural modernization movement called Saemaul Undong in the 1970s in South Korea. Based on a case study of two rural villages, the study raises questions about community participation and the long-term sustainability of the rural development effects of this movement (if any). The findings reveal that the gap in the actual performance of the two villages studied, in terms of long-term sustainability, is mostly due to the different natures of participation and types of village governance, which in turn is closely related to the leadership accountability and local governance mechanism of the village concerned. While acknowledging that the participatory approach should remain the core mode of development cooperation, this study raises a warning about the risk of the recent Korean government's unilateral promotion of Saemaul Undong as a Korean model of participatory community development, and instead invites us to take a closer look at intra-village governance and genuine grassroots-level community participation.

  • Love in community work in rural Timor-Leste: a co-operative inquiry for a
           participatory framework of practice
    • Authors: Godden N.
      Pages: 78 - 98
      Abstract: ‘Love’ is poorly explored as an ethic and framework of practice in community work for transformational social change. This is despite the large body of work regarding love as a foundation of activism, as articulated by bell hooks, Martin Luther King Jr, Mahatma Gandhi and Thich Nhat Hanh. These and other activists promote the radical potential of love; yet, the social work, community work and international development sectors do not actively engage with love as a process for sustainable structural change. This article shares a framework of practice of love-based community work that was developed through a co-operative inquiry with ten rural community workers in Liquica, Timor-Leste. I describe our co-operative inquiry method and share the group's design, data and analytical approaches and findings. I then discuss the group's collaboratively developed framework of love-centred community work. I show that our egalitarian process and framework of love in community work reflects feminist, radical and Freirean theories and indigenous worldviews, demonstrating how international development donors can more openly embrace collaborative and grassroots frameworks for practice in Timor-Leste.

  • Measuring community resilience: developing and applying a ‘hybrid
           evaluation’ approach
    • Authors: Steiner A; Woolvin M, Skerratt S.
      Pages: 99 - 118
      Abstract: Communities are increasingly encouraged to become more resilient, be more active and proactive, adapt to economic and social transformation, and possess the ability to change. Many initiatives aim to enhance community resilience, however there are few effective measurement tools which identify the influence of these initiatives on the resilience of participating communities. Our paper proposes a model for measuring community resilience combining both quantitative and qualitative methodological approaches. We utilize a hybrid evaluation approach which links existing international research with findings from an empirical study. We test our Capacity for Change community resilience model using findings from a longitudinal study including 292 face-to-face, semi-structured interviews. Our research contributes new learning on resilience measurement, and draws conclusions for practitioners, policymakers and researchers.

  • The ‘business of community development’ and the right to the city:
           reflections on the neoliberalization processes in urban community
    • Authors: Fursova J.
      Pages: 119 - 135
      Abstract: The paper explores emerging contradictions in community development, a subset of non-profit sector, within the context of neoliberalization. I examine non-profit sector as a site that has a potential for articulating counter-hegemonic discourse alternative to neoliberalism. Conversely, non-profit sector itself has been subjected to neoliberal co-optation and restructuring that resulted in restricted autonomy of the sector and decreased capacity to advocate for progressive social change. Drawing on my experience as a community engagement worker in one of Toronto's neighbourhood improvement areas, I problematize community development, posing questions about the role of the non-profit agencies in the production of specific socio-economic configurations that may, albeit inadvertently, support neoliberal discourse. Through an example of local community campaign for increased access to public space and services, I highlight options to enhance counter-hegemonic potential of community development as a critical practice aimed at advancing the commons.

  • Impact of displacement on livelihood: a case study of Odisha
    • Authors: Jaysawal N; Saha S.
      Pages: 136 - 154
      Abstract: Displacement by development projects jeopardizes welfare of people living at its periphery. The acquisition of land for large industries, mines, or special economic zones gives rise to the livelihood insecurity of the poor and less privileged people. Displacement from the original habitations often means not only the physical relocation but also the loss of livelihood derived from the subsistence resources offered by the local environment. Due to displacement, people lose common property resources like forests, rivers, fields, and grazing grounds. It is estimated that some 3–5 million people have been displaced since 1950 in Odisha on account of various development projects, of which more than 50 percent are tribals (Haan, A. D and Dubey, A. (2005) Poverty, Disparities, or the Development of Underdevelopment in Orissa, Economic and Political Weekly, XL(22–23), 2321–2329). The involuntary displacement has brought imbalances in possession of land in various districts of Odisha. Therefore, this paper seeks to explore further the impact of displacement on livelihood of tribal and non-tribal communities of Odisha. It may pinpoint key challenges faced by them due to development-induced displacement.

  • Assessing the effect of corporate social responsibility on community
           development in the Niger Delta: a corporate perspective
    • Authors: Idemudia U; Osayande N.
      Pages: 155 - 172
      Abstract: The widespread adoption of corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies by oil transnational corporations in developing countries have led to calls for a concerted effort to better capture CSR effects. Unfortunately, capturing the impacts of CSR is not as straightforward as it might seem. In fact, oil companies operating in the Niger Delta continue to face the challenge of how to determine the success or failure of their CSR initiatives either in terms of its effect on community development or its impact on corporate–community relations. To address this problem, Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) in 2013 launched the Shell Community Transformation and Development Index (SCOTDI). SCOTDI represents an innovative framework that integrates and adapts a number of international principles into a composite index in a manner that is responsive to local context. The framework is used to assess and rank the performance of the different Global Memorandum of Understanding (GMoU) clusters within the host communities of SPDC. This article suggests that SCOTDI allows for a systematic assessment of the effects of CSR on community development and provides incentive for positive inter-cluster competition for community development. However, the framework also suffers from some shortcomings that can reasonably be addressed. The article considers the theoretical and practical implications for efforts to assess CSR contribution to community development in developing countries.

  • A comparative analysis of the role of traditional and modern
           community-based organizations in promoting community development in
           Ogoniland, Nigeria
    • Authors: Okeke-Ogbuafor N; Gray T, Stead S.
      Pages: 173 - 189
      Abstract: Given the failure of top-down initiatives to bring about community development (CD) in many developing countries, attention is switching to bottom-up approaches, one of which is to use community-based organizations (CBOs) as the conduit through which CD may be achieved. This paper compares the effectiveness of traditional CBOs and modern CBOs in fostering CD in eight communities in Ogoniland, Nigeria, where there is a long history of neglect and underdevelopment. The paper was based on extensive fieldwork carried out in eight Ogoni communities during 2013–2014, which involved 101 telephone interviews with residents, 67 face-to-face key informant interviews, 189 survey questionnaires, and 3 focus groups discussions. The two main conclusions reached by this paper are that despite some praise expressed by respondents for their CBOs, the fashionable belief that CBOs are strong agents of bottom-up CD is not borne out by this study; and there is little difference between respondents’ evaluations of the contributions to CD made by modern CBOs and the much vaunted traditional CBOs.
