Building the Big Society (CASEreport 67)

Report that brings together a range of evidence about civic engagement and community control. Starting from an overview of some of the emerging coalition policy around the 'Big Society' and localism, it proceeds to consider these current directions in the light of the long history and diverse history of “Big Society” type approaches, then outlines some of the opportunities and challenges communities face in taking up these opportunities.

The report has a specific focus on the challenges for more disadvantaged communities in engaging with the Big Society.
