Halsall, Jamie (2014) The Re-invention of Sociology of Community. International Review of Social Sciences and Humanities, 8 (1). pp. 91-98. ISSN 2248-9010

In today’s society the term ‘Community’ is frequently used. Politicians, religious leaders, policy makers and the media are repeatedly utilizing the concept to describe a particular scenario. Traditionally, sociologists have been fascinated with community, within a theoretical and geographical context. At the centre of the community is the debate of how external agencies work with the local community and how social policy can work at a local level. The aim of this paper is to critically explore the debate around community and how the subject has re-established itself within the discipline of sociology. To justify the arguments surrounding the Sociology of Community the author uses a case study of The United Kingdom.
