Gateways: International Journal of Community Research and Engagement
Vol 8 No 1 (2015)
Welcome to our latest volume of Gateways. Over the past eight years of publishing this journal, we have been constantly impressed by the calibre, complexity and ambition of the work under discussion. This volume is no different. Just two examples: the article by Jones et al. explores a long-term, multi-pronged and multi-party collaboration that is delivering real health and education outcomes to children in remote New South Wales, Australia; while Saylors et al. provide a detailed account of their innovative efforts involving various levels of government, rural communities and public health and animal health institutions to better understand human-animal disease transmission in Vietnam. Also noteworthy in this collection is the strong social justice aims of much of the research - from work with the homeless sector in Canada to youth leadership initiatives in Michigan, USA.
