    Community Empowerment in England and Scotland

    Reframing Citizen Relationships with the Public Sector in a Time of Austerity:<br>Community Empowerment in England and Scotland

Introduction

Reframing State-Citizen Relationships in a Time of Austerity is a one year project funded by the AHRC as part of the Connected Communities Programme.  The project  aims to critically explore how the differing policy stances of the Scottish and UK public sectors  are being rolled out in a time of austerity.  It will identify and examine the mechanisms through which the role of the state in relation to community empowerment is being changed in light of the ‘Big Society’ and 'Localism' agenda in England and the Community Empowerment Bill in Scotland.

The project involves a multidisciplinary team from four universities and IPPRNorth with Joe Painter as the principal investigator based at Durham.
