Abstract

In this article I consider the relationship between different types and methods of conducting research in the context of community development. In particular I will consider the degree to which different approaches contribute to core objectives of community development to empower communities and promote social justice by engaging the most excluded. The contents will draw on a dialogue within my own agency, the Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC).
