Renewing neighbourhoods; work enterprise and governance.


Renewing neighbourhoods; work enterprise and governance.

Syrett, Stephen and David North.

Policy Press


290 pages




For academics, practitioners, students, and policy makers, this volume addresses economic development issues involved in neighborhood deprivation. Syrett and North (local economic development and regional development, Middlesex U., UK) consider the economic nature of problems of deprived neighborhoods and the policy responses that have developed in Britain, particularly in the post-1997 period of the New Labour government, as well as within the broader context of the past 40 years. They draw from academic research and policy practice and five case studies of local areas within England, which show the different economic contexts and characteristics of these neighborhoods. Focusing on elements of work, enterprise, and governance, they discuss socioeconomic processes and policy responses to the elimination of joblessness, the promotion of enterprise, and wider governance issues. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
