The journal publishes empirical and evaluative case studies of community-based research and pedagogy; detailed analyses of partnership models, processes and practices; and theoretical reflections that contribute to the scholarship of engagement. Gateways is jointly edited and managed by the Centre for Social Justice and Inclusion at the University of Technology Sydney, Australia, and urbanCORE at the University of North Carolina Charlotte, USA.

Vol 16 No 2 (2023)

This themed volume of Gateways brings community and university partners together using two aligned methodologies: community-based research (CBR) and asset-based community development (ABCD). The volume places these methodologies in dialogue with each other, to examine and begin to answer the question that guided the volume’s call for articles: can CBR and ABCD be compatible agents in equitable and sustainable change? This rich collection of articles ranges from conceptual frameworks to hands-on and evidence-based practice and reflection.
