Communitivity and Intercommunitivity as Tools for Collective Learning to Address Ethnic Service Programming, Delivery and Evaluation

Mambo Tabu Masinda

Abstract


These research notes are based on my last ten years of experience as a community worker in a multicultural setting and a university researcher on immigrant services. The aim is 1) to introduce two new terms - communitivity and intercommunitivity – which appeal for moving beyond ethnic group juxtaposition and 2) generate new ways of thinking about how communities with different cultural grounds can construct collective meanings which support a better understanding of programming, delivery and evaluation of services in multicultural communities. The paper has implications on public policy and immigrant services programming, delivery and evaluation.
