This chapter lays out the shared principles that have been drawn both from the practice examples and other experiences, seeking to specify key factors required for effective community development in the context of social exclusion. These principles include: equality, diversity and tolerance; partnership, solidarity and cooperation; participation; and creative and innovative organisation. The last section addresses the challenging question of how changes in communities brought about by community development can be measured.
