The changing nature of 'connectivity' within and between communities

Feature image 1

Our aims

  • Understand the kinds of connections that may occur in communities, how these are changing and how these changes are happening in social and historical contexts.
  • Inform and stimulate discussion about connectedness in communities in a way that will be of value to researchers doing work for the Programme.
  • Discover information about how connections within communities are changing and how this is impacting on quality of life.
  • Examine evidence about community-based interventions and the role of connectivity within these.
  • Begin to provide an articulation between research expertise and communities themselves.
