This chapter outlines how, as in the UK, public housing developments are considered as high-crime areas. These areas are shown to have been subject to a range of interventions. The discussion also reveals the ambiguous conceptual position, which is also analogous to the UK, where public housing is conceived as both a ‘dangerous’ tenure and a victimisation. The promotion of residential stability and community ties that are regarded as reducing levels of ASB are also shown to be connected to the promotion of responsibility and reduced welfare dependency.

Keywords:   public housing developments, high-crime areas, intervention, dangerous tenure, victimisation, residential stability, community ties, ASB levels, reduction, reduced welfare dependency
