This chapter addresses the question of what community development and other organisations can do to strengthen the case for a community development approach to social exclusion. It includes a case study from Ireland about policy change at the European level. Any action agenda on social exclusion should not simply be a manifesto or a list of requests. It should be based on important, exciting developments in communities across Europe that faces severe economic, social and environmental problems and where too many members of communities are experiencing social exclusion in one form or another. The chapter argues that it must be an agenda that has implications as much for policy makers and politicians as it does for practitioners and local people. It is crucial to overcome the hurdles that make communication and joint work with a range of actors or partners so challenging in the European context.
