Tuesday 14th February, 2023, 9.00 – 10.30 UTC/GMT
The Community Development Journal and Centre for Social Justice and Community Action are pleased to announce an online event to be held on Zoom to launch a special issue of the journal on ‘ethical issues in community development’.
The event will be introduced by special issue co-editors, Sarah Banks (Durham University, UK), Pradeep Narayanan (Praxis, India) and Lynda Shevellar (University of Queensland, Australia). Many of the contributors of the 11 articles will be present, highlighting some of the ethical challenges in community development around the world – from respecting local norms while tackling conflict in the Lake Chad region, to analysing neighbourhood opposition to people with disabilities in Lithuania, and developing community-based ethical contracts in the UK. We will discuss controversial and provocative questions about ethics, politics, power and colonisation in break out groups facilitated by the special issue contributors.
