Institute for Community Research Announces 2007 Conference

The Institute for Community Research has just announced it will be holding the 2nd International Community-Based Research Conference from June 7 – 9, 2007 in Connecticut, USA. Witht he theme of Beyond the Crossroads: Transformations in Community-Based Research, the conference will bring together those who are committed to using research for social change.
Transformations will build on the themes from our 2004 Crossroads conference addressing critical issues in community-based research partnerships, theory, methodology, methods of dissemination and ethics. (2004 conference program at: www.incommunityresearch.org/news/documents/crossroadsprogram.pdf) The conference will also cover new trends including the democratization of research and the growth of community-based research organizations (CBRO), new movements linking art and research, and the politics surrounding choice of “best practices” in research design and intervention evaluation. Interactive presentations and workshops will cross-cut fields, including health and mental health, education, environment, community development, racial/ ethnic and cultural relations and cultural development. More details to follow soon!
