New Community Quarterly
Call for Articles, News, Poems and Other Interesting Contributions
Volume 4, No. 2 – Winter 2006
“Community Development and people of Different Abilities”
This issue invites contributions to the above theme, which obviously invokes issues of inclusion, difference, how do communities deal with the presence of people of all (dis)abilities in their midst. We also invite contributions to policy and programs dealing with inclusion of people with disabilities, as well as experiences from the ‘grassroots’ across all the various locales where community development is the ‘operative term’ to describe the approach to inclusionary practices.
Papers to be received no later than end May 2006. Publication date June 2006.
Volume 4, No. 3 – Spring 2006
“Volunteering and the Practice and Politics of Community Development”
Volunteering is something most of us do. Volunteering enables us to use some of our skills, energies and motivations in ‘other’ areas of interest or concern. But is that all? Does it enhances one’s career, does it open up another career, or does it enable us to participate in the practice and politics of community development? Volunteering is much more than unpaid work as it enables us to promotes social change, enhance social justice and human rights. Is this, with the tighening of Centrelink rules, the new Industrial Relations confusion, and the fear-promoting anti-terror legislation, just what is needed?
