Briggs and Thompson focuses on resident participation in community development. He says community development needs "deep democracy" or "empowerment 2.0," which he defines as true civic engagement among all involved actors and sectors. Moreover, this is more than "participation"; real civic engagement requires community ownership and control of capital.
