Community and place
Communities, societies and the places people live face an array of changing influences, from demographic shifts and technological innovations to globalisation and climate change. The humanities and social sciences offer vital insights into understanding how people respond to these changes together, and how these changes transform the ways in which people relate to each other and to the places they live.
The British Academy’s current work in this area includes Cohesive Societies, a programme of policy and research work that aims to explore how societies cohere and fragment in the face of rapid political, social, economic and technological change.
