Thinking Collectively

Paul Spicker

Policy Press

A community is a based on networks; patterns of community include communities based on cultural identity, communities of interest and communities of place. Social policy has built on the idea of community to promote a model of solidarity where people can be integrated into the networks and included socially. The 'political community' becomes the focus both of collective action and of moral responsibility.
