Disadvantaged by where you live?: neighbourhood governance in contemporary urban policy
Ian Smith, Eileen Lepine, Marilyn Taylor
Policy Press, 2007 - Social Science - 245 pages
Disadvantaged by where you live? distils lessons from work on neighbourhoods carried out within the Cities Research Centre of the University of the West of England over the past seven years. It offers a major contribution to academic debates on the neighbourhood both as a sphere of governance and as a point of public service delivery under New Labour since 1997. Neighbourhood governance is examined in relation to: multi-level governance and city-regions; local government; mainstreaming; cross-national differences in neighbourhood policy; community and civil society; diversity; different conceptions of democracy; and evaluation and learning.
