Community Organising Against Racism (eBook)
'Race', Ethnicity And Community Development
Sobre o livro
In this unique global collection, Gary Craig and his contributors blend theory and practice-based case studies to review how different community development approaches can empower minority ethnic communities to confront racism and overcome social, economic and political disadvantage. The book explores key questions about the empowerment and capacity-building of minority ethnic groups. Using case studies from across the developed world, and in differing social and economic contexts, contributors explore these issues in working with asylum-seeker communities, addressing tensions between minorities and building alliances, in work with Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities, and using arts-based approaches. The book will stimulate wider debates about the role of community development in relation to race and ethnicity at a time when race is being invisibilised in public policy, and will be an invaluable resource for policy-makers, politicians, academics, and students from many disciplines.
