The Centre for Communication and Social Change

The Centre for Communication and Social Change (CfCSC) specialises in the study and practice of communication for social change (CSC), an increasingly popular field of study that promotes the use of communication processes, techniques and media to facilitate people in their own context-specific development, and create the capacity for social dialogue. The underpinning philosophy of the CfCSC is that communication is not simply about transferring information and sending messages, but rather about listening, responding to, and helping people give direction to their own change, and supporting enabling environments for this change to take place.

The CfCSC is based at the School of Journalism and Communication at the University of Queensland, one of Australia's premier learning and research institutions. The CfCSC is the only specialised centre, and the only academic institute to offers study in this field, in Australia.

Our Centre is staffed by experienced practitioners who have global expertise in development and communication matters, including with the UN, NGOs and donor bodies.
Particular areas the CfCSC focuses on includes participatory development communication, community media for development, communication rights, sustainable development, inter‐stakeholder communication, behaviour change communication, community engagement in development, and ICTs and social change. Particular processes the CfCSC specialises in includes participatory program planning, evaluation and impact assessment; communication strategy development; facilitation; adult learning; participatory needs and opportunity assessments, and action research.
