Hard to reach or easy to ignore: Promoting equality in community engagement

Oliver Escobar, Sarah Morton, Ruth Lightbody, Karen Seditas

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

The key motivation for this review of the literature is to explore the intersection between community engagement and equality. This is important because inequalities in health, wealth, income, education and so on, can be seen as stemming from inequalities in power and influence. Therefore, community engagement processes can simply reproduce existing inequalities, unless they are designed and facilitated to distribute influence by ensuring diversity and inclusion.
