  • CDJ Editorial—What is this Covid-19 crisis'
    • Authors: Meade R.
      Pages: 379 - 381
      Abstract: When I first started preparing for this issue of the CDJ in February 2020, little did I imagine that the editorial would be written from my kitchen table because Ireland was in lockdown. Stories about the terrible impacts of the Coronavirus on East Asia were circulating in our media, but it still seemed possible to wallow in our own complacency. That illusion, like so many others, has now been shattered. The CDJ readership is diverse and international, but wherever we are physically located we are becoming familiar with a terrifying and, at the time of writing, still unpredictable globalising force—Covid-19. The pace and scale of infection, the lives lost or shortened, the havoc wrought in public health systems, the depth and degree of restriction on movement, each of these consequences is unfolding in its own locally and nationally specific ways. Describing this as the ‘defining health crisis of our time’ the World Health Organization warns that ‘this is a global crisis that requires a global response’ (WHO, 2020). Behind the simple truth of that statement, however, lies a complex and troubling reality: local encounters with this crisis, as with so many others, are being mediated by profound inequalities in power, resources and visibility.

  • Aid, social capital and local collective action: attitudes towards
           community-based health funds and village organizations in Rushan,
           Tajikistan
    • Authors: Jacobs E; Hofman I.
      Pages: 399 - 418
      Abstract: AbstractDespite overwhelming interest in the role of social capital in international development, attention to the interplay of community-based development aid with local collective-action dynamics in Central Asia and particularly Tajikistan has remained limited. This paper investigates donor-induced local institutions for collective action in rural Tajikistan with a focus on the introduction of a community-based health insurance. Social capital and collective-action theories are used to interpret results from qualitative research in two Rushan District villages in the Gorno-Badakhshan region. By highlighting the role of donor embeddedness, and the perceived legitimacy of different decision-making structures, the article contends that the perception of such externally-induced change depends on the community’s capacity to reach beyond the intra-communal solidarity network through bridging and linking capital. The findings suggest this can be fostered by addressing trust, and the role of effective development brokers, with due attention to power relations within communities and towards external agents.

  • HIV activism in modern Russia: from NGOs to community development
    • Authors: Nartova N; Krupets Y, Shilova A.
      Pages: 419 - 436
      Abstract: AbstractIn the context of the spreading HIV epidemic in Russia and the lack of government's effectiveness in addressing this problem, the role and the importance of HIV activism in protecting the rights and improving the quality of life of HIV positive people have been increasing. This article focuses on the development of the HIV community in St. Petersburg, one of the largest and the most problematic, in terms of the HIV epidemic, cities in Russia. The research was conducted within the qualitative methodology, using ethnographic case-study methods and biographical interviews. The authors use the analysis of field observations and nineteen interviews with men and women involved in HIV activism in St. Petersburg to show how collective actions of NGOs and action groups form the city HIV community through working with different groups and the development of participants' agency.

  • ‘Why can’t we help protect children too'’ Stigma by association
           among community workers in child protection and its consequences
    • Authors: Hamilton S; Cleland D, Braithwaite V.
      Pages: 452 - 472
      Abstract: AbstractCommunity workers provide critical support services to parents and families with children who may be placed in out-of-home care by child protection authorities. Drawing on in-depth interviews with fifteen community workers, who represent nine agencies assisting families with child protection issues in a small jurisdiction in Australia, we show how the stigma attached to ‘bad’ parents is passed on to the community workers who are supporting them. The ‘stigma by association’ directed at community workers by child protection authorities means they are stereotyped negatively, undermined professionally and socially excluded. In spite of such stigmatic treatment, community workers remained committed to their professional role. Although workers were frustrated and disappointed in the treatment they received, there was no open acknowledgment of stigma-induced poor mental health. The results are interpreted within a broader social context where child protection authorities are being constantly reviewed and criticized in Australia. The support that community workers give to each other as frontline defenders of families against a powerful and publicly criticized government authority may allow community workers to construe themselves as heroes rather than villains in this highly adversarial environment. The costs play out at the institutional level, however, because reduced trust limits opportunities for genuine collaboration between government and community organizations.

  • The power of participatory story mapping: Advancing equitable development
           in disadvantaged neighbourhoods
    • Authors: Lung-Amam W; Dawkins C.
      Pages: 473 - 495
      Abstract: AbstractCommunity developers and planners have long recognized the value of storytelling to engage communities. Yet, in working with disadvantaged communities, they are often challenged to meaningfully engage residents and uncover place values that can help drive community development strategies. In a case study of Langley Park, Maryland, a neighborhood comprised of largely low-income Latino immigrants facing potential displacement from a new transit line, this article investigates the potential of new story mapping techniques and technologies to assist communities in leveraging everyday place meanings and values to advance greater equity in the process of neighborhood redevelopment. It demonstrates how participatory story mapping can empower traditionally marginalized voices and encourage more complex place narratives within community development and planning.

  • Why networks matter in faith-related community development work: learning
           from diverse Christian responses to debt in England
    • Authors: Orton A; Barclay D.
      Pages: 496 - 514
      Abstract: AbstractThis article explores the significant contribution being made by diverse Christian responses to debt in England, drawing on action research in London and the North East of England. These responses range from providing individual support and services to forms of organizing that tackle perceived causes through collective action and political campaigns. We show how complex links, relationships and networks have developed between responses, as those involved seek to generate more widespread, holistic and effective interventions. Through this, we show how these approaches have addressed related challenges by combining learning from different models and working across different scales, identities and boundaries, and consider wider learning for community development from this research.

  • The promise of collective impact partnerships
    • Authors: Mayan M; Pauchulo A, Gillespie D, et al.
      Pages: 515 - 532
      Abstract: AbstractThe research question guiding this inquiry was, ‘From the perspective of collective impact (CI) practitioners, what makes CI a promising approach to partnership work for systemic social change'’ The researchers sought to answer this question through interviews with participants involved in CI partnerships in North America, Europe and Australia. Content analysis of the interview transcripts revealed that CI is defined as a model, a framework or a tool for partnership work and that its promise, as well as challenges, lie in its inherent demand for relationships between ‘unlikely partners’, its call to establish equitable practices in relationship building and its goal to foster systemic change through collective responsibility. The researchers recommend that future research focus on determining whether this approach surpasses theoretical significance and is a successful approach to partnership work.

  • From conflict to a Community Development Agreement: a South Gobi solution
    • Authors: Sternberg T; Ahearn A, McConnell F.
      Pages: 533 - 538
      Abstract: Community Development Agreements (CDA) present a progressive approach to addressing endemic challenges in local communities encountering resource extraction. Focusing on community-centred action, a CDA offers the potential to inform, engage and resolve disputes at local levels. Here we present a case study highlighting the process leading to a successful CDA between herders and a mega-mine. The process exemplifies the promise O'Faircheallaigh (2013, p 96) identified in this journal—that CDAs can ‘minimize negative impacts and ensure local communities obtain benefits from development’ of mining. In fact, the Oyu Tolgoi (OT) Mine case in Mongolia is a prime example of how, with cooperation, training and trust, a community, mining company and local government can resolve intractable problems and promote a cooperative development environment.

  • The State and Civil Society: the case of Citizens’ Groups in the ger
           districts of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
    • Authors: Terbish B; Rawsthorne M.
      Pages: 382 - 398
      Abstract: AbstractMongolia is a vast landlocked, sparsely populated, country which shares borders with China and Russia. Two decades of democratic government has coincided with rapid cultural, social, environmental and economic change marred by increasing inequality. Addressing the challenges of inequality demands meaningful engagement between state and non-state actors in the emergent democracy of Mongolia. This article focuses on research with Citizens’ Groups, semi-formal grassroots groups involved in community development in ger districts of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city. Drawing on research undertaken in 2017 with members of Citizens’ Groups and employed staff of Non-Government Organizations it explores the interaction between government (in the form of local government or Khoroo) and civil society (in the form of Citizens’ Groups). Data was collected via interviews, focus groups and site visits with over thirty people. Accordingly, the paper continues a focus on emerging community development practices in East Asia, a region both benefiting from and challenged by urbanization from rural to urban settings. The paper concludes that Citizens’ Groups are key to realizing the Government’s commitment to building social capital, social innovation and the social economy. To realize this goal, however further work is required to promote a democratic political culture, expand citizen participation and strengthen co-operation between the State and civil society.

  • Foucault, governmentality theory and ‘Neoliberal Community
           Development’
    • Authors: Fraser G.
      Pages: 437 - 451
      Abstract: AbstractIt is widely accepted that Michel Foucault’s ‘governmentality lectures’ constituted a seminal moment in the history of neoliberal studies. In an analysis which was original and prescient, Foucault framed neoliberalism, not only in terms of a set of economic policies based on monetarism, de-regulation and privatisation, but also as a productive power, which arguably, marked the beginnings of a new paradigm in the governance of human beings. Drawing upon my own empirical research, which was based on a case study of community development in the context of local government in the UK, I apply ideas associated with Foucault and governmentality theory to the field of contemporary practice. I argue that community development has been fundamentally transformed by practices associated with neoliberalism and new managerialism, and that a model of practice which can broadly be characterised as ‘neoliberal community development’ has emerged along with a changing sense of professional identity. In an analysis indebted to governmentality theory, community development emerges not so much as a social profession rooted in the needs and aspirations of communities as a technology of government which is deployed by local states to facilitate neoliberalisation, austerity and the marketisation of public services.
