“Study circles are a type of community dialogue process that can help people explore complex issues, make some decisions and begin to take action. During study circles, community members come together to have a community dialogue on an issue. It is a community – driven process that recruits from all parts of the community. The process begins with community organising and is followed by facilitated, small group dialogue which leads to community change. Study circles don’t advocate a particular solution. Instead, they welcome many points of view around a shared concern.”
