Why these questions?

Concepts such as community, social capital and social inclusion are used in current Australian social policy, so it is important that a strong understanding grounded in lived experience is brought to our understanding of these concepts.

In contrast to outcomes based studies designed largely to evaluate interventions in disadvantaged areas, this project takes an ethnographic approach in order to present a more nuanced understanding of social interaction in a desirable suburb.
