TSRC Working Paper 116

by James Derounian

In January 2014, TSRC's below the radar research project held a special conference in Retford in the East Midlands, to look at the current state of rural community organising. 

The event was organised in partnership with the University of Gloucestershire and the Rural Services Network, with input from experts in the field. An initial Briefing Paper was published to provide an opening overview and to trigger debates.

Now a full Working Paper, informed by the event's discussions, is available. It explores the histories, tensions and challenges of rural community development and organising, and will be of relevance throughout the UK and beyond.
