  • Rethinking co-operatives: Japanese-Canadian fishing co-operatives
    • Authors: Lee J; Smallshaw B, Peredo A.
      Pages: 540 - 557
      Abstract: Drawing on a case study of Japanese Canadian (JC) fishing co-operatives on Canada's West Coast at the beginning of the twentieth century, this article explores the politics of knowledge production in Canadian co-operative historiography and discourse. There is an absence of JC and other minority ethnic groups’ co-operative experiences in the Canadian co-operative literature that has resulted in a narrow Eurocentric, masculinist and colonizing understanding of co-operatives. The article argues a need for critically reconceptualizing Canadian cooperative history and offers implications for reconceptualizing co-operative theory and practice.

  • Planning implications of guarded neighborhoods in Malaysia
    • Authors: Tedong P; Wan Abd Aziz W, Hanif N, et al.
      Pages: 558 - 572
      Abstract: The increased prevalence of enclosed communities began to draw attention from researchers and commentators worldwide as early as the 1970s. Although much of the early discussion concerned communities in the United States, gated communities were well documented on most continents and in diverse contexts by the 2000s. In Malaysia, in response to perceived market demand for residential enclaves due to globalization and modernization, a number of private developers have created bespoke gated communities. However, less research has been conducted on the retrofitting of existing residential neighborhoods (guarded neighborhoods) with security measures or the ‘ad hoc’ privatization of such neighborhoods. Therefore, drawing on case studies of older, access-controlled residential communities, this article investigates urban planners' perceptions of talks about the planning implications of guarded neighborhoods in the Malaysian state of Selangor. As individual local community groups mobilize to levy what amounts to an additional local tax to finance dedicated guards and gates at the street level, urban planners regularly encounter a conflict between ‘good-neighborhood’ principles and the importance of social–spatial integration. Malaysia's government authorities encourage citizens to enclose local spaces despite the legal prohibition on enclosure and the adverse effects of such interventions on physical and social integration in existing urban residential neighborhoods.

  • Building empowerment in market-based redevelopment: changing paradigms for
           affordable housing and community development in Washington, DC
    • Authors: Howell K.
      Pages: 573 - 590
      Abstract: Affordable housing and community development have embodied conflicts in planning and policy, changing over the years from a way in which to guard against moral and physical contagion to a source for community empowerment, and more recently, as part of a negotiated social service. In the newly redeveloped Washington, DC neighbourhood of Columbia Heights, housing and community development encapsulate both the community empowerment perspective of the Civil Rights era and the neoliberal paradigm of market-based redevelopment and housing. With a focus on affordable housing preservation using the Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act, the District's unique right of first refusal law and other housing programmes focused on preservation, almost 2200 affordable housing units were preserved. Meanwhile negotiated agreements created only 250 new units in the neighbourhood. This article explores both the roots of these housing interventions and the resultant challenges and opportunities that have arisen as a result of these methods.

  • The discursive construction of an active rural community
    • Authors: Kumpulainen K.
      Pages: 611 - 627
      Abstract: In this article, I will study active rural communities, how they are constructed in the speech of local people involved in community development practices. Over the past twenty years, community-led development practices have been a new paradigm for the rural development in Finland, which has been reflected as increasing number of village associations. I will analyse the discursive construction of the active community by interviewing all the present and previous leaders of three active village associations in the province of Central Finland. Active rural communities are constructed through village associations, by their local activities and self-consciousness as active communities. In the local representations, a rural community is constructed especially as a nurtured process, which progresses and develops according to the amount of local people’s commitment to the home village. Even if the leaders of active communities have adopted the strategic development discourse as the way to define their villages, the rural policy objective to get rural communities to adopt entrepreneurial subjectivity has not been achieved. Instead, the local discourse reflects how the local activeness is more about struggling for survival. Despite the contradiction between rural policy and local level, the activeness discourse constructs village associations as responsible for keeping villages alive through the rationality and practices of rural community development.

  • Enhancing choices through collective capability: a study of invisible
           home-based cashew processors in Kerala, India
    • Authors: Kuzhiparambil A.
      Pages: 650 - 667
      Abstract: This article is an attempt to understand the heterogeneous nature of home-based cashew workers in Kerala. The article uses narrative approach to illustrate the lived experiences of the home-based workers. The evidence from the field study in Kollam district reveals that the majority of the workers engaged in the home-based processing, voluntarily or involuntarily, are women. The home-based processing is considered as an additional option to earn income by these workers. As a result, despite the ban on cottage processing of cashew, it is operating in a clandestine manner. The study shows that the enhancement of individual and collective capabilities of the women in the informal sector requires an understanding of their multiple identities, as well as an acknowledgement of the existing gender relations and social structure.

  • Community development in higher education: how do academics ensure their
           community-based research makes a difference'
    • Authors: Wood L.
      Pages: 685 - 701
      Abstract: Community engagement is positioned as a core strategic aim in higher education internationally, yet one could question how ‘engaged’ such endeavours are. Community-based research is supposed to promote the co-creation of contextually relevant knowledge to assist communities to improve their capacity for addressing issues they deem important for learning and development. However, it remains a challenge to conduct authentic participatory and democratic research within the restricted time frames and rigid ethical requirements of academia, traditionally geared towards a more researcher-driven form of enquiry. The adversities experienced by participants living in contexts of poverty tend to immobilize rather than encourage individual and collective agency. It is thus difficult to expose underlying structural barriers to development, unless academic researchers adopt epistemological and methodological paradigms that require meta-reflection on the process and foreground community definitions of what change is valuable. Drawing on my reflections of collaborating with an HIV and AIDS agency in a socio-economically challenged community, I discuss the underlying and inherent socio-structural inequalities that influenced participation, power relations and communication and threatened the emancipatory outcomes of the participatory action research (PAR) process. I explain how using a capability lens to guide a PAR process enabled me to assist participants to choose an alternative pathway to learning and development. Based on my learning, I offer some suggestions that other academics might find useful to help them promote the epistemological, practical and emancipatory outcomes fundamental to PAR designs if they are to contribute to lasting community development.

  • Expecting the unexpected: the role of surprise in community-driven
    • Authors: Saloma C; Mangaser L, Hidalgo C.
      Pages: 702 - 719
      Abstract: This article reconstructs the pilot implementation of the Livelihoods for Vulnerable Urban Communities (LVUC), a community-driven development project in the Philippines, as a living laboratory and an implicit real-life experiment. Real-life experiments aim at identifying surprising interactions between the experimental system and its context, while a living laboratory not only emphasizes experimentation but also co-creation. Our goal in analysing data from a sixteen-month process-oriented assessment of the LVUC project is to explain why a development project's ability to handle surprise, or the unexpected, during implementation promotes community participation. Surprises arise because development projects inevitably involve knowledge mobilization. As a real-life experiment and a living laboratory, the LVUC project mobilized knowledge in two ways: first, by drawing on tested and accepted knowledge on how to induce community participation, and second by identifying events that occur unexpectedly and run counter to accepted knowledge about community-driven development. While often manifesting themselves as implementation difficulties, surprises can generate new knowledge and opportunities for innovation and co-creation. Many social science and development practitioners are wary of the notion of ‘experiment’, associating it with the social costs of experimenting with people. Lessons from the LVUC project, however, show that development projects must recognize the mobilization of knowledge as a component of implementation. The adoption of experimental habits and the problem-solving mode is the corollary of this recognition.

  • Mitigating blight and building community pride in a legacy city: lessons
           learned from a land bank's clean and green programme
    • Authors: Sadler R; Pruett N.
      Pages: 591 - 610
      Abstract: Property abandonment presents pervasive problems for legacy cities, but land bank-oriented greening programmes that engage residents – including youth – in improving neighbourhood conditions provide the opportunity to mitigate the consequences of property abandonment. Diminishing the negative effects of vacant properties is essential for improving the health and well-being of residents in these cities. This research examines the impact of a vacant land greening programme in the Rust Belt city of Flint, MI, through interviews with thirty-three participating community groups. Participants believed that the programme was effective at mitigating blight and building community pride. These results are directly applicable to the development of future blight elimination programmes throughout the region.

  • Community development in ‘Post-Neoliberal Bolivia’: decolonization or
           alternative modernizations'
    • Authors: Wutich A; Beresford M.
      Pages: 628 - 649
      Abstract: Latin America is at a pivotal moment, as many nations reject neoliberalism as a tool for development and search for alternative approaches. Two competing counter-ideologies may have the potential to reshape Latin American society: alternative modernizations and decolonization. In this study, we examine the extent to which these ideologies have become influential in Bolivian community development. Drawing on interviews with Bolivian development professionals, we examine community development projects deemed successes and failures to determine whether they reflect neoliberal, alternative modernization, or decolonial ideologies. We find that community development projects deemed successful tend to follow alternative modernization and decolonial ideologies, while projects deemed failures tend to follow neoliberal ideologies. Our results demonstrate concrete ways in which transformative approaches to community development – which are often depicted as nascent or unrealized in the literature – are being implemented successfully in Bolivia. We also explore some limitations of the alternative modernization and decolonial approaches for those seeking transformative approaches to community development.

  • Building smart communities in the Hungarian social economy
    • Authors: Orbán A.
      Pages: 668 - 684
      Abstract: We are living in an increasingly interdependent and crisis hit globalized world, not least in Europe, including Central and Eastern Europe. Many Hungarian local communities feel that they lost rather than gained from the political transition of the early nineties and the socio-economic development in Hungary over the last twenty-five years, as the country has opened up to globalization and joined European Union integration processes. These people are marginalized and lack both material and non-material stability due to unemployment, the erosion of social ties and scarcity of resources. In this research article, our first assumption is that there is a way out of this desperate situation even for local communities living in the poorest, most neglected rural or urban areas. Escaping the poverty trap requires creative and innovative self-help, trust and solidarity to be sustainable in the long term. The second assumption is that some self-help communities can successfully be maintained largely in cities (by means of ‘favour’ or time banks), while others (using micro-credit or self-sustaining community models) can effectively operate only in rural areas, which can then be followed by other communities as models of best practice. Looking beyond these differences, the common feature of these community-based models is that they represent forms of social or solidarity economy. To build up and then sustain these models in the long run, the local community, and especially their leaders, should be supported by high levels of social capital, most importantly trust, as the quintessential element of social capital.
