Inaugural Issue: Community Change Revisited

Community Change’s inaugural issue seeks to unpack the notion of ‘community change’—its complexities, transformations, and challenges in recent decades of intensified economic, environmental, and political instabilities. It critically interrogates responses to these processes and aims to locate where change is (or is not) happening, why, and in what ways. It also explores who is claiming authority to create community change and for what purposes. This inaugural issue contains scholarly articles that re-examine the complexities of community change, probing whether this and related concepts are mobilized to achieve genuine, emancipatory transformation or to reinforce existing structures and relations of power or perhaps both.
