The academic and policy interest in the development of cities, the renewal of residential and older industrial neighbourhoods in cities, and issues to do with race, polarisation and inequality in cities has remained at the forefront of policy and academic debate across Europe and North America. This book provides an important new contribution to these debates and highlights specific issues and developments which are crucial to an understanding of debates about residence, renewal and community empowerment.



  • engages with the urban regeneration, development and housing aspects of real estate

“The conclusions are well written by the editor. They accurately describe and compare the value of the different contributions in the book. This edited volume contributes enormously to our understanding of the policy responses and the involvement of various parties in this process. For urban scholars and students the book provides a wealth of good empirical material to think about and discuss with each other. Hopefully the key issues for research that conclude the book will lead to more and much-needed research in this field.” Journal of Housing and the Built Environment

'This is an exciting and important book. It contains a wealth of material on topics that include community renewal, ethnic relations, participation, conflict, and urban change. It successfully bridges the transatlantic divide, offering a wide array of valuable insights for researchers, policy-makers and students. The collection is particularly successful in combining broader conceptual and analytical work with detailed material on policy issues and experiences.'Malcolm Harrison, Professor of Housing and Social Policy, University of Leeds
