"Cultures, Communities, Identities" explores a wide range of cultural strategies to promote participation and empowerment in both First and Third World settings. This book starts by analyzing contemporary debates on cultures, communities, and identities, in the context of globalization. This sets the framework for the discussion of cultural strategies to combat social exclusion and to promote community participation in transformative agendas for local economic and social development. The final chapter focuses on the use of cultural strategies and new technologies across national boundaries, at the global level.
