Codified knowledge: the failure of neighbourliness in regional policy
Networking skills and localised social knowledge are presently under nourished and under develop ed in many regional communities in Australia. By examining recent concepts of relational work and its place in institutions we address questions of innovation for regional development.
Both through grassroots leadership and by the sensitive overcoming of individual sense of loss as frameworks of work and life change, communities can raise their own levels of self-awareness and effective self-management. Government can assist these changes or hinder them. We shall suggest that attempts to promote grassroots change have so far been clumsy and too little sensitive to differences between being neighbourly (forming and nourishing good relations) and training in coding the problems.
