The 'agency' of sustainable community development

A. Dale, J. Sparkes
2010 Community Development Journal  
This article describes research that builds on a previous study of social capital conducted in 2002 and 2003 in a Canadian community, exploring the relationship between agency and sustainable community development. It examines what is agency and, based on reinterviewing the 'nodes' or 'connectors' from previous research, it identifies the characteristics of agency and whether or not agency is an a priori condition for network formation and social capital at the community level.
