Citizenship and Regeneration: Participation or Incorporation?

In this chapter, published in 2003, I explore the experiences of local community activists involved in regeneration initiatives in a large seaside town on the sout coast of the UK, and indicate their complex, fractured and sometimes contradictory nature. Their experiences are also set against changing definitions of community and of citizenship and refracted through government regeneration narratives. Activists’ voices frame the concepts of participatory spaces, community representation processes and activists’ identity as I explore community participation in regeneration forums.

Learning and Training for Neighbourhood Renewal

This research, published in February 2002, developed out of a project to explore progression pathways from informal learning in the community to more formal education. It extended that work by mapping existing provision relating to skills and knowledge for the development of communities, and analysed needs and desires for training related to Neighbourhood Renewal.

Given the current shift towards delivery of services through the community and voluntary sector, this research has renewed relevance.
