Civil Society and Social Change

Series Editors: Ian Rees Jones, Cardiff University, Mike Woods, Aberystwyth University and Paul Chaney, Cardiff University

“This ambitious new series promises to address a pressing need to deepen and broaden our understanding of civil society at a time of great disruptive social and political change. The focus on forging new analyses through a strong interdisciplinary approach is particularly welcome.” Nick Acheson, Trinity College Dublin

The series comprises of a core set of edited volumes reporting on research findings from across the Wales Institute of Social & Economic Research, Data & Methods (WISERD) Civil Society Research Centre. The editors welcome additional contributions, and are particularly interested in interdisciplinary volumes that will expand on the series themes:

  • Locality, community and civil society
  • Individuals, institutions and governance
  • Economic austerity, social enterprise and inequality
  • Generation, life course and social participation

Selected titles in the series are available open access.
