This book discusses key theoretical constructs — community engagement, capacity building, and community empowerment — in order to demonstrate how theory and practice are relevant to the development of forms of community involvement.
I shaped, edited and project managed this contributed book, involving 23 international authors, with co-editors Dr. Reena Tiwari and Dr. Dianne Smith.
...the three editors, shaped the volume M2 Models and Methodologies for Community Engagement through carefully chosen international contributions ranging from listening to the local knowledge of village women in rural India to pro bono work in suburban Australia, from hypothetical urban planning in Japan to women's health knowledge in rural Uganda. All the examples chosen embrace an embedded and locally informed knowledge.
