About this website

This website is the home for research and related materials in the areas of community, (hyper)local democracy, connections and knowledge. The current focus of our work is Scottish Community Councils, though we are always looking for international contexts and comparisons.

This site reflects work carried out  by Edinburgh Napier University’s Centre for Social Informatics. Your hosts include Peter Cruickshank, Hazel Hall and Bruce Ryan. Go to the About the team page to find out more.
