Higher education is experiencing a transformative change engaging the community.

Highly recommended!" - Dzulkifli Abdul Razak, President, International Association of Universities, France; Honorary Professor, University of Nottingham, UK, and Muhammad Yassin Chair of Leadership, Islamic Science University of Malaysia

"This is an important contribution to providing a theoretical and conceptual frame for better understanding the complexities of community based research in different countries and institutional contexts. The authors do not shy away from grappling with the challenges and risks inherent in bringing community based research from the periphery into the mainstream of university research." - Nasima Badsha, Chief Executive Officer, Cape Higher Education Consortium, South Africa
