Report: Seminar on Community Development

Friday, December 13, 2013 - 00:00

This report brings together the deliberations of the seminar on participatory planning and evaluation for community development: The Scottish experience, International questions and Irish issues hosted on Thursday 23rd at Maynooth University  May 2013 by the Department of Applied Social Studies at Maynooth University. The seminar was organised as part of our commitment to supporting the development of the community work discipline, and its principles, processes and contributions.
The seminar’s discussions sought to illuminate and pinpoint the pitfalls and possibilities contained in this language of evidence. We are very grateful to Fiona Garven and Stuart Hashagen of the Scottish Community Development Centre for their time and contributions to the day and also to all who engaged in the lively and informative exchanges which took place.
