      Authors: Meade R.
      Pages: 551 - 560
      Abstract: As I approach the end of my term as co-editor of the Community Development Journal (CDJ), it seems like an appropriate time to think about the project of academic writing and the conditions under which it occurs. The entire edifice of academic publishing relies on trust; trust that research and writing have been produced in good faith; trust that editors and reviewers deal fairly and respectfully with the work, even as they/we subject it to critical appraisal; trust that journals and publishers are fully committed to the sharing of knowledge and learning; trust that ideas matter and that research illuminates; and trust that production and distribution channels are consistent and reliable. Even if trust is not some inherent quality or function of academic life, it might be hoped that the criss-crossing of identities and roles – whereby the editors are edited, reviewers are reviewed and the cited cite – might inspire and encourage ethical behaviour. The continued existence of the CDJ is partly a reflection of that foundation of trust upon, which academic publishing is built, not least because our authors trust it as a possible home for their work. Doubtless, submission and review processes can be daunting, disappointing and even frustrating for authors, but hopefully, peer reviews that properly emphasize the peer relationship do create conditions under which writers can develop greater confidence or pride in their own voices and arguments.

      Abstract: Community Development occupies a marginal and sometimes uncertain place in Social Work education, particularly in the Global North (Hanna and Ife, 2019; Westoby et al., 2019) leading to questions about its relevance in a neoliberal Social Work environment that focuses on individuals and on actions to manage risk. This environment restricts collective and generative practices that attempt to engage groups and communities in processes of social change. In contemporary global conditions that bring pressing new challenges and widening polarities, Community Development’s place in Social Work needs urgent re-examination (Forde and Lynch, 2015). What is the place of Community Development within Social Work education' How can Community Development pedagogy enable Social Work students to identify and pursue social justice and human rights goals' In what ways can qualifying Social Work education prepare practitioners to use Community Development in a range of contexts and settings' What can Community Development knowledge and ideas bring to the new and emerging challenges facing Social Work'

      Authors: Lynch D; Lathouras A, Forde C.

      Abstract: AbstractIn a rapidly changing and unpredictable global environment, there is new impetus to draw on community development approaches in the face of complex practice challenges that include the long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. As social work and community development educators in Ireland and Australia, the question becomes how can we respond in a time of major ‘disruption’ where there are both opportunities and constraints' This paper settles on this pause and uncertainty to seek new approaches to prepare social work students for changing conditions. Long-standing questions re-surface in relation to social, economic, political and environmental structures and conditions that are located in a neoliberal framework. The paper explores challenges and opportunities facing educators and social work students through a core set of principles—critical, relational and connected—that underpin our community development pedagogy. Within these themes, we explore teaching practices which seek to create a ‘Community of Learners’, generate a process of collaborative critical inquiry, engage students in reflective praxis enriched by contemporary theory and research, and foster a deep, connected and adaptive perspective on global and local issues. This stimulates creativity and meets the need for critical and adaptable practitioners capable of practical action through this period of disruption and crises of governance, climate and technologies of the future.

  • Social media and (im)mobility: implications for community development

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Marlowe J; Chubb L.
      Pages: 587 - 607
      Abstract: AbstractThe contemporary forced migration contexts of conflict, climate change and contagion present new challenges and opportunities for the ways in which community development is understood, practised and imagined. The accelerating trends of refugee persecution and high-impact weather events causing disasters now sit alongside the uncertainties of closed borders and rapidly evolving geopolitics. Despite these dislocations and constraints on human mobility and immobility, the possibilities for connection remain, although unevenly. Mediated predominantly through the smartphone, social media offers new opportunities, cautions and ethical considerations for the circulation of care, intimacy and trust. These flows can now significantly inform and shape everyday lives, political action and how ‘community’ is envisaged and enacted. In the ongoing context of dislocation and separation, this paper presents a longitudinal digital ethnography that examines how people from refugee backgrounds practise transnational connection and community when physical reunion is not possible. These online spaces represent opportunities to explore the implications for community development and more broadly social work education. Drawing upon the theoretical framework of the social organization of difference and its associated domains of encounters, configurations and representations, this paper articulates the possibilities and challenges for community development and more broadly social work education and practice when opportunities for physical co-presence are highly constrained.

  • Striving to strengthen the ecosocial framework in social work in Finland

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ranta-Tyrkkö S; Närhi K.
      Pages: 608 - 625
      Abstract: AbstractThere is no economic or social sustainability without ecological sustainability, yet the latter can hardly be achieved without the other forms of sustainability. While contemporary consumer societies are still today fundamentally unsustainable, advancing the overall sustainability transition as well as mitigating and preventing the ecological crisis should be high on the social work and community development agendas. On one hand, this is because the ecological crisis both causes and increases social inequality and vulnerability. On the other hand, aspiring sustainability requires profound social and cultural changes, bringing about which belongs to social work and community work’s areas of expertise.Asking how to respond to the socio-environmental crisis and its ramifications in social work education, this article focuses on the currently evolving ecosocial framework in Finnish social work education and practice, paying special attention to the opportunities and hindrances in its realization. The inquiry is based on thematic analysis of advanced level social work students’ views on these issues, as presented on a 5 ECTS (credits as per the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) course Social Work in Ecosocial Transition, part of the University of Jyväskylä’s social work master’s degree curriculum. In countries like Finland, where community development has a marginal role, adoption of the ecosocial framework would inherently strengthen the community based and political orientation in social work.

  • An orderly curriculum for a messy field' Classroom-field tensions in
           community organization in India

      Authors: Vyas M.

      Abstract: AbstractThe large-scale reverse migration from cities to villages at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and again during the second wave in 2021 highlighted the persistence of poverty in India. Civil society responses pointed to the pressure that it was under in the absence of adequate outreach by the state for meeting food, livelihood, and other insecurities of urban and rural populations. Against this backdrop, the article outlines some of the challenges facing Social Work and Community Development in addressing poverty and marginalization. An examination of the relationship between Social Work with the state, and the contemporary complex neoliberal context for practice, highlights classroom-field tensions in community organization. In preparing graduates for what appears to be a messy field, an orderly curriculum, irrespective of how well thought out it may be, struggles to retain convergence between principles of CD and certain elements of contemporary practice. It emerges that education for CD needs to build systematically on critical community practice and align with an anti- oppressive framework, in order to contribute substantively to addressing poverty and marginalization.

  • Community development as a key element in social work education and
           practice in Spain

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Anleu-Hernández C; García-Moreno C.
      Pages: 644 - 662
      Abstract: AbstractSocial work has always recognized the importance of community development as a key element in intervention and social change. Even so, the neoliberal context currently affecting the reality of most of the countries in the Global North is directly influencing the weakening of community actions and is reinforcing more individualistic positions. The main objective of this paper is to analyze the extent to which neoliberal policies are impacting on the teaching of community development content on social work programs in Spain and to study the impact of this reality on the implementation of community plans and projects in Catalonia. The methodology used was qualitative and was based on a systematic review of institutional documentation, community programs and specialized literature. Likewise, the study plans of the 32 universities currently teaching the social work degree in Spain were carefully reviewed to identify and analyze the subjects that focus their primary content on community development. We highlight the purpose of public and private institutions to maintain and promote community development plans and programs and the need to broaden and promote the community development approach in social work study plans. Finally, we present recommendations on how to promote social intervention and community development as key elements in both the training and practice of the social work profession.

  • Tacit knowledge, cultural values and agential possibility in rural Haiti

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Stephenson M; Jr, Zanotti L.
      Pages: 663 - 678
      Abstract: AbstractThis article recounts the efforts of a group of subsistence farmers (earning approximately $1.00 per day in income) in a mountainous rural part of Haiti who, working with a young social entrepreneur from their community, have self-organized to develop more economic opportunities by improving their farming practices communally. We posit that they have done so on the basis of the Haitian value of konbit, a form of social sharing and solidarity, and thus, on a foundation of what Michael Polanyi has termed tacit knowledge of their situational context. We suggest that efforts to secure development be rooted in initiatives aimed at catalyzing residents’ self-mobilization capacities and tacit communal knowledge and values, even if, or when, such an approach requires more time or resources to obtain desired outcomes. We also highlight critical perspectives of the now ubiquitous concept of resilience to explore the possibilities and limitations of agency that emerge from tacit knowledge in the context of continuing neoliberalism and its accompanying structural violence. We conclude that Polanyi’s ideas of freedom and agency provide a much more robust foundation on which to build a conceptualization of development and political–economic change than is offered by today’s prevailing neoliberal ‘resilience’ imaginary.

  • Embeddedness dilemma and alternative commoditization of social economy in
           rural China: a case study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: He Y; Chui E.
      Pages: 679 - 696
      Abstract: AbstractThis article identifies different aspects of the embeddedness dilemma in a rural social economy project in South China. The term ‘alternative commodification’ is proposed to summarize the practitioners’ strategy. This strategy highlighted social embeddedness of economic development, but on the other hand involved the village deeper into the commodification process. Participants of the project only focused on newly emerged economic opportunities, with little concern of the embeddedness goal. Based on social transformation theory of Wright, the article also identifies two social reproduction mechanisms brought by marketization reform as structural barriers for realizing embeddedness goal: universal commodification and consumerism, both of which intensify villagers’ demand for cash income and ignorance of social dimensions of the project. Future research also needs to identify more barriers and methods to overcome obstacles in the process of developing social economy.

      Authors: Daly S; Allen M.
      Pages: 697 - 713
      Abstract: AbstractThe walking interview is used to explore the lived experiences and meanings individuals attach to place(s). Despite scholarly interest in place and volunteering, attention to the walking interview is lacking. This article presents an exploratory study, which invited five volunteers to participate in a walking interview. Our aim is to discuss the walking interview to expand the range of methodologies employed in research on volunteering, particularly volunteering and place. The walking interview has novel implications for the conceptualization of volunteers and for the meanings individuals identify in their volunteer experience(s). Volunteers can be conceptualized as mobile subjects to explore the implications of physiological movement in place for the volunteer experience. Walking can unearth the significance of emotions and memories to volunteers’ negotiation of the ‘everyday politics’ of volunteering. The mobility of people and objects in sites of volunteering are salient as they reveal embodied aspects of the volunteer experience.

      Abstract: AbstractAt a time when the term ‘radical’ is predominantly associated with intolerance and violence, this article explicitly interrogates its meaning and application in community development praxis. Based on a qualitative inquiry, influenced by community development principles, community workers with rich experience at both micro- and macro-levels in Ireland were interviewed individually, then collectively to elicit their perspectives on the possibilities and challenges for radical community work in Ireland. While specifically located, its conclusions have relevance for community work and community development globally.Findings show that being a professional and a radical are not incompatible. Some radical community workers recognize their dual role in service of the state and their obligation to work with others to change it. Acknowledging that marginalized communities do not have the access to power available to more privileged communities necessitates strategies to maximize influence. At the same time, there is an intimate connection between the methods used to transform society and the nature of the subsequent society. As workers accountable to communities, funders and the profession itself, the strategies engaged with and tactics adopted warrant careful consideration.This article seeks to challenge the dichotomy of either conflict or consensus approaches as overly simplistic. Its suggests that some community workers can hold a radical agenda and conflictual ideology while pro-actively engaging with decision-makers who, although part of systems, which perpetuate inequality, can also be agents of change.

  • Leader: reflections on the promise and the reality

      Authors: Slee B.

      Abstract: Over the last 25 years, I have taken a strong interest in LEADER as a researcher and rural development consultant. This involved mid-term and ex post evaluations of Rural Development Programmes in different parts of the UK and several one-off evaluation studies for Local Action Groups, the local implementing bodies for LEADER. In 2019, my relationship with LEADER changed when, as a member of a third sector body, I applied successfully for a grant from LEADER. Wearing two hats, as community development practitioner and researcher, I want to reflect on LEADER thirty or so years after its initiation and ask whether it has fulfilled its promise and justified the considerable optimism shown in it by so many across the EU.
