Contrary to common beliefs, economic globalization does not imply the end of social urban policy. This book argues that urban society and policy-makers have sufficient degrees of freedom available to decide on the social and economic future of deprived neighborhoods. Experiences from several European cities shwo that neighborhood-based redevelopment strategies offer a more promising future to urban populations than the global-market led slow movement that paralyzes urban policy today.
