  • Re-approaching community development through the arts: a ‘critical mixed
           methods’ study of social circus in Quebec
    • Authors: Spiegel J; Parent S.
      Pages: 600 - 617
      Abstract: Community arts projects have long been used in community development. Nevertheless, despite many liberatory tales that have emerged, scholars caution that well-meaning organizations and artists may inadvertently become complicit in efforts that distract from fundamental inequities, instrumentalizing creative expression as a means to transform potentially dissident youth into productive and cooperative ‘citizens’. This article examines how social circus – using circus arts with equity-seeking communities – has been affecting personal and community development among youth with marginalized lifestyles in Quebec, Canada. Employing a ‘critical mixed methods’ design, we analysed the impacts of the social circus methodology and partnership model deployed on transformation at the personal and community level. Our analysis suggests that transformation in this context is grounded in principles of using embodied play to re-forge habits and fortify an identity within community and societal acceptance through recognizing individual and collective creative contributions. The disciplinary dimension of the programme, however, equally suggests an imprinting of values of ‘productivity’ by putting marginality ‘to work’. In the social circus programmes studied, tensions between the goal of better coping within the existing socioeconomic system and building skills to transform inequitable dynamics within dominant social and cultural processes, are navigated by carving out a space in society that offers alternative ways of seeing and engaging.

  • These Photos Were My Life: understanding the impact of participatory
           photography projects
    • Authors: Fairey T.
      Pages: 618 - 636
      Abstract: This article analyses the impact of participatory photography as a tool for community development. In recent decades, participatory arts and media initiatives are increasingly agency – rather than community-led, their value assessed using linear evaluative models and framed in terms of short-term, measurable, results. It is argued that these tendencies impede the potential critical contribution of participatory photography to social change processes and fail to capture important aspects of the psychosocial, political and subjective impact of projects. As a result projects struggle to prove their worth: the evidence base is weak and learning about the social reality of practice is hindered.This article presents research on Los Talleres de Fotografia Social (TAFOS), a pioneering Peruvian community photography project, that demonstrates the enduring long-term impact that community-led participatory photography projects can have on the critical consciousness of participants. Participatory photography is understood as an emergent process whose effects cannot be planned or predetermined but that rather needs to be understood in context, over time and from the subjective perspectives of participants. Discussing both the potential and the limitations of participatory photography, its uncertain contribution and the value of its open-ended effects within processes of nurtured emergent community development this research contributes to literature pushing for a reconfiguration in how we understand, capture and attribute the impact of participatory photography, and participatory arts and media more broadly, as a tools for social change.

  • Urban redevelopment and the expulsion of a village: an urban village in
           Seoul and residents’ responses to the redevelopment project
    • Authors: Kwon H.
      Pages: 637 - 655
      Abstract: This paper focuses on the issues raised by a redevelopment project currently taking place in an ‘urban village’ in Seoul, Korea. The paper examines the urban villagers’ diverse community activities and responses to the redevelopment project. Furthermore, it explores how place attachment and communal feeling among neighbours have not only played an important role in creating emotional alliances for resistance against the redevelopment project, but have also helped residents to keep their property rights. This paper ultimately stresses the contradictions of the Hapdong redevelopment system through examining long-term residents’ responses in the topography of conflict over the redevelopment project, and argues that this system is no longer fit to serve the needs of the urban ecology.

  • The N2 scrap collectors: assessing the viability of informal recycling
           using the sustainable livelihoods framework
    • Authors: Schenck C; Theodore N, Blaauw P, et al.
      Pages: 656 - 674
      Abstract: A group of women in the rural Eastern Cape Province of South Africa earns a living collecting scrap metal and paying to transport it for sale in Durban. The sustainability of their livelihood is in question because of an ever-shrinking supply of recyclable metals, fluctuating commodity prices, and the logistical difficulties of transporting the materials to buyers further along the recycling value chain. Using the sustainable livelihoods framework, this paper highlights the opportunities and challenges facing these informal recyclers. It shows how the women have fashioned a livelihood practice in the context of widespread rural poverty, isolation from recycling markets, and limited community assets. Implications for community development include the need for a participatory sustainable livelihood analysis to evaluate ways to counterbalance the instability and uncertainty involved in informal recycling and to raise the incomes of the women involved in this activity.

  • Women and collective action: lessons from the Indian dairy cooperative
    • Authors: Dohmwirth C; Hanisch M.
      Pages: 675 - 693
      Abstract: This article scrutinizes key effects of women’s empowerment through cooperative membership. Since the 1980s, over 3000 women-only dairy cooperative societies have been founded in Karnataka, India, with the objective of economically and socially empowering women. First we review the broader literature on gender and collective action in a development context and then empirically assess empowerment levels among fifty-eight female dairy farmers in Karnataka. We discriminate between membership and non-membership status in women-only versus mixed-gender dairy cooperatives and compare empowerment levels among those groups, borrowing categories from the Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index. We find that, in a context of rural poverty in which women-only cooperatives are promoted without offering additional development opportunities for men, the empowering effects remain limited to increased leadership abilities. Cooperative membership as such does not automatically enhance women’s control over income or their intrahousehold decision-making power. In fact, members of women-only cooperatives perceive themselves as having even less control over dairy income and productive decisions compared with unorganized female dairy producers. These findings suggest that collective organizations in the dairy sector which systematically exclude men may fail to increase women’s empowerment at the household level. At the same time, women face entry barriers to participation in mixed-gender cooperatives. We conclude that policies in support of women-only cooperatives and female members in mixed-gender cooperatives may require more rigorous evaluation.

  • A dynamic framework for strengthening women's social capital: strategies
           for community development in rural Bangladesh
    • Authors: Seferiadis A; Cummings S, Maas J, et al.
      Pages: 694 - 713
      Abstract: There is considerable evidence in the literature that social capital contributes to poverty alleviation, but evidence of how development actors can strengthen the productive social capital for poor people remains scarce. This article describes strategies to strengthen social capital developed by an NGO and poor women as part of a development programme, undertaken in Jessore District, rural Bangladesh, during 2006–2012. The NGO and the women leveraged bonding (familial), bridging (peers), and linking (vertical links to powerholders) social capital to improve the livelihoods of women and their families, simultaneously changing gender relations within households and communities. Against a background of local norms and ethics, the NGO and the women employed strategies that created opportunities for women to meet and exchange, and develop their social skills, know-how, self-worth and capacity to act. Drawing on these strategies, the article presents a dynamic framework for strengthening social capital for community development, providing theoretical insights into the mechanisms for doing so.

  • Community development in wounded communities: seductive schemes or
           un-veiling and healing'
    • Authors: van der Watt P.
      Pages: 714 - 731
      Abstract: Communities all over the world have been wounded by oppression, conflict and geopolitical arrangements. The field of community development is ideally positioned to facilitate healing, but engagement with and reflection on the complex layers of woundedness appears to be limited in this field. It focuses on the economic through service delivery and poverty reduction projects, often with disappointing results. These failures may inflict new wounds. The article brings the field of community development into conversation with the theory on communal wounding and healing. Wounding is explored as a series of losses through subjugation and oppression, ultimately resulting in the loss of the authentic self. Healing is theorized as a process of conscientization and the liberation from false perceptions of self, through which the authentic self can emerge. I found the origin of the word ‘develop’ in the Latin verb velo: to veil, cover or conceal. Develo is to undo these: un-veil or un-cover. However, current interpretations of development seem to be aligned to how development is explained in modern dictionaries: amend, change, complicate or increase. If we understand wounding as a process of ‘veiling’ or loss, healing would imply un-veiling. Is community development engaging deliberately with the wounding, through a slow process of un-veiling/conscientization' Or is it applying quick fixes to amend the so-called ‘underdeveloped’ – and thereby adding yet another layer of veils and wounds' The article encourages reflection on how unconscious and self-indulgent actions through community development can damage and compound the wounding of our communities.

  • Reconceptualising undeclared work as paid favours: implications for
           community economic development
    • Authors: Williams C; Alexandra Horodnic I.
      Pages: 732 - 750
      Abstract: The dominant depiction of undeclared work as exploitative low-paid employment has been contested by several locality studies which portray undeclared work to be mainly paid favours conducted voluntarily for close social relations to help them out. Reporting data from 28 European countries to evaluate its wider validity, the finding is that most undeclared work is composed of paid favours and conducted voluntarily, especially in Western Europe and Nordic nations. The outcome is a call to shift away from seeking its eradication and for recognition that such work is predominantly a form of active citizenship that needs to be fostered.

  • The role of community development in building critical health literacy
    • Authors: Sykes S; Wills J, Popple K.
      Pages: 751 - 767
      Abstract: There is growing international interest in health literacy and the processes by which it can be developed. Critical health literacy, one of the domains of health literacy, shows an affinity with the goals and processes of community development. Critical health literacy represents a cognitive and personal skill set that exists at either individual or community level and which is oriented towards social and political action on factors affecting health. This article examines the relationship between critical health literacy and community development. Using an illustrative case study it explores the extent to which community development processes were used by a project to build critical health literacy amongst vulnerable populations and communities. The case study demonstrates that in working to build the different elements of critical health literacy processes were used that were typical of community development. These processes included building self-efficacy and self-esteem, participatory and mutual learning techniques, acquisition of technical, practical and emancipatory knowledge, democratic processes of collective decision making, critical questioning, critical awareness raising and conscientization. The article argues for community development to embrace and advance the concept of critical health literacy in order that; its potential to address inequalities in health can be achieved and to create an opportunity to embed community development more fully within health policy and practice.

  • The impact of community initiatives on socio-economic convergence:
           achievements and difficulties in one of the EU's most underdeveloped
    • Authors: Zsigmond T; Tesits R, Horvath T, et al.
      Pages: 768 - 785
      Abstract: The overall objective of this essay is to present the regional characteristics of the community initiatives in one of the EU's most underdeveloped regions. In particular, it pays attention to factors affecting the situation today, the examination of relation system in the region, particularly the non-profit sector's role in community development. Beyond the secondary analysis of the research background and the statistical data showing the characteristics of the settlements, the study is based on primary results coming from the questionnaires addressed to the leaders of municipalities and interviews made with the larger NGOs. The results of the study show that the development level of the sector, due to the socio-economic conditions of the area, is far below the Hungarian average. This can be traced to the fewer number of organizations, the unfavorable economic potential and the absence of relationships.
