Assets-based approaches in Italy, Quebec and Scotland.

Asset-based approaches tap into and mobilise the human capital that exists in people and communities to create strong social and community networks. The approach puts emphasis on developing people strengths rather than concentrating on their needs. Iriss invited Professor Paul Morin of Sherbrooke University in Canada to present the findings of his research in Trieste, Italy, and in two neighbourhoods in Canada.

Lisa Pattoni presents highlights from Paul's talk and discusses his research with Fiona Garven of the Scottish Community Development Centre and Jennifer McLean of the Glasgow Centre for Centre for Population Health.
