Title: 'On Notions and Practices of Community' and 'Civic Participation'
Authors: Werbin, Kenneth
Keywords: Civic Participation
Community Networking
Informatics
Issue Date: 2005
Publisher: Canadian Research Alliance for Community Innovation and Networking
Abstract: This short foray into questions of ‘civic participation’ and ‘community networks’ will outline and highlight the need in Community Networking and Informatics research to more clearly and rigorously unpack the term ‘community-based initiative’. If we are to better understand ‘how community networking can act as a catalyst of local, regional, national and international civic participation’, then probing the discourses that constitute ‘community’ and how they operate through ‘communal activity’ would seem to be a key point of interrogation.
