The searches by European Union major states for 'joined up' approaches to inner city regeneration are examined thematically through a focus on policy evolution since the mid-1970s. Key issues addressed include the physical, social, employment and urban security agenda. The product of long-term research, drawing on extensive qualitative and quantitative sources, this book assesses how contemporary urban rejuvenation is being regulated, including the increasing contribution of the European Union.
Dr Stephen Mangen is a senior lecturer in European social policy at LSE. A founding member of the Cross National Research Group, his main research interests are the politics of the welfare state in Germany and Spain, social policy-making at European Union level, comparative methods and urban regeneration policies in Europe.
