Disadvantaged by where you live? : neighbourhood governance in contemporary urban policy

Ian Smith, Eileen Lepine, Marilyn Taylor

"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. The book explores: How 'the neighbourhood' has been used in policy in the UK? What is the 'appropriate contribution' of neighbourhood governance and how does this relate to concepts of multi-level governance? What tensions are visible at the neighbourhood level? And what does this tell us about wider governance issues? The book explores and reflects on the notion of neighbourhood governance from a variety of perspectives that reflect the unique depth and breadth of the Centre's research programme. 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. In doing so, the book identifies useful conceptual tools for analysing the present and future contribution of policy to neighbourhoods.
