The final chapter looks at the way ‘housing renewal’ is understood in the countries under study; and at the origins, development and present focus of renewal policies. It concludes that, in contrast to what was shown in previous studies, there is now much greater agreement on the purpose of housing and urban renewal, and on the approaches to it that are likely to be successful. This understanding seems to override the political and economic pathways that individual countries have followed. A consideration of what has been achieved through renewal, especially in the nine countries featured in the book, leads to a discussion of the future prospects for housing renewal and its continuing importance for public policy in Europe.
