Summary

The overall goal of CUISR is to build the capacity of researchers, community-based organizations and citizenry to enhance community quality of life.” This mission is reflected in the following objectives: (1) to build capacity within CBOs to conduct their own applied social research and write grant proposals; (2) to serve as a conduit for the transfer of experientially-based knowledge from the com [...] Researchers within each of the modules examine these dimensions from their particular perspective, and the results are integrated at the level of the Institute, thus providing a rich, multi-faceted analysis of the common social and economic issues. [...] The integrated results are then communicated to the Community and the University in a number of ways to ensure that research makes a difference in the development of services, implementation of policy, and lives of the people of Saskatoon and Saskatchewan. [...] The Coalition formed in October 2000 as a response to changes to the income assistance policy under the auspices of the Department of Social Services, now known as the Department of Community Resources and Employment (DCRE). [...] However, changes in women’s social and labour roles and in the economy have created the possibility of redefining gender differences within the welfare state: The trend towared greater individuation holds out promise to establish a greater equality between men and women by linking entitlement to the individual rather than the position of wife or mother within the family (Scott, 1999: 211).
