What is Changing Public Engagement?

“Changing Public Engagement from the Group Up” (CPE) is a pilot exercise in innovative and ‘non-traditional’ methods of public engagement.


CPE is a part of the national, inter-university project Engendering Public Engagement, Democratizing Public Space. This national project is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), and is led by Dr. Barbara Cameron, Department of Political Science, York University. It brings together twenty university and community-based feminist researchers and three partner organizations: the Canadian Feminist Alliance for International Action (FAFIA), the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women (CRIAW), and York University’s Centre for Feminist Research (CFR). 


CPE’s goal is to engage marginalized communities, evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of these public engagement approaches and their potential for wider application.
