Community development and civil society: Making connections in the European context

Paul Henderson


To what extent are the ideas and practice of community development across Europe similar? This book explores this question with special reference to the UK and Hungary and shows how community development connects powerfully with civil society, a concept that today has global significance. The book argues that community development is both a profession and a social movement and is relevant to a wide range of issues. Chapters interweave case studies with discussion of principles and theory.

Keywords: community development, civil society, Europe, UK, Hungary, social movement
