Location: Ryton Gardens, Wolston Lane, Coventry, UK

Date: 2-5pm, 4 April, 2017

Organisations that undertake research, engagement and policy work are dominated by white middle-class men. The basic question the book attempts to answer is: what happens when these institutions attempt working with the rest of the world, which is different and diverse?”. For further details on the book or to download a FREE ecopy visit the Mesh article.

Journal For Community Engagement: Global Health Communication

Routledge has published the first of its Global Health Communication journal, an open access journal that addresses health questions from multiple perspectives, experiences and cultures. 

The journal creates a space for the international research community to advance scholarship around the role of communication processes in global public health, policy and behavior change. Although focussed in description on "communication" the articles in the first issue include multiple examples of high level community engagement work so it will certainly be of interest to the Mesh community.
