|The aim of the course is to explore the interplay between the professional, the policy and the political contexts in which community educators operate. The course will consider the ways contemporary theoretical debates about community, equalities, social order, social justice, citizenship and democracy both open up and constrain the possibilities for professional action. Particular attention is given to the interrogation of specific policy and policy discourses at different levels from the local to the trans-national.
