Principal Objectives

  • Study, evaluate, compare and formalize practical knowledge on community governance developed within minority communities
  • Extract concrete action strategies
  • Contribute to the circulation of new knowledge on the role of community governance within the development of linguistic minorities’ sector

Three questions guide our research alliance’s approach

  1. What are the knowledge based and potentially innovative practices in the community development sector?
  2. How do they contribute to the renewal of community governance?
  3. How can we formalize or translate the most innovative knowledge based practices into strategies for action?

Strategic research sectors in collaboration with the community partners

  1. Economic and community development
  2. Integration of diversity
  3. Youth mobilization
  4. Access to justice

  • Case studies of potentially innovative practices in the community development sector in Canada and abroad
  • Comparisons with the United States, Ireland and Wales
  • Incubation practices within our research alliance
  • Mobilization activities (workshops, seminars, conferences, training, etc.)
