50th Anniversary Conference

Why Community Development?
Continuity and Innovation


1-3 July 2015, Edinburgh

To celebrate its 50th year, the Editorial Board of the Community Development Journal organised a number of exciting activities in 2015, including a special issue, themed issues of critical contemporary relevance, and an international conference.


This page links to resources generated during the 50th Anniversary Conference. The event, which was held at the University of Edinburgh brought together scholars, policy makers and practice-based participants and activists with a common interest in the issues of social justice, equality and community.


New resources from this event are gradually being added. Please check back for updates!
