This chapter looks at some of the issues that arise in service development and research, which limits itself exclusively to community representatives. Community representatives are often self-appointed, but are sometimes elected as information sources. The chapter first explores the dynamic between the potential for interdependence with other key actors within the community setting and the community representatives in representing race-related issues. It is also argued that service development and research projects must counterbalance the dominance of these influences. The discussion references the personal experiences of the author and uses two ethnographic case studies.

Keywords:   service development, community representatives, information sources, interdependence, race-related issues, ethnographic case studies
