The Communities in Transition Programme Forum for Cities in Transition 25 th  May 2011
Context The CIT Programme seeks to build relationships within and between people and communities, to promote local participation in community development and peacebuilding and to create community cohesion by offering opportunities and support that had not been previously available to the selected areas. It recognises the particular difficulties facing communities experiencing weak community infrastructure and sees the process adopted by the Programme as an important step in redressing the imbalance created by the previous lack of investment in social capital, especially in areas that continue to experience the legacy of the conflict, alienation and/or marginalisation.
Context (cont’d)  Addressing weak community infrastructure in areas of community tension requires long-term investment of time and, to a lesser extent, resources (not just financial resources).  It requires face-to-face support and advice; it is not a process that can be managed from an office and is not one that can be resolved through a quick-fix injection of money to “balance the books” with other areas. Supporting areas of weak community infrastructure and community tension involves a certain amount of risk taking.  But, unless someone starts things moving, these communities will remain excluded and become further alienated at considerable social and economic costs to themselves and Northern Ireland.

Objectives (cont’d) To influence policy-making at local and regional levels in relation to areas of weak community infrastructure that are also experiencing community tensions.
