This chapter pinpoints how ASB interventions have been extended from housing estates to city centres in order to handle begging and homelessness. It links this expansion in scales of intervention to the neoliberal discourses of city competitiveness. It then criticises the present policy emphasis on informal mechanisms of social control, where the residents of deprived communities are considered as ‘their own saviours’. The chapter also introduces the notion of ‘compounded citizenship’ and calls for policy situations that are aimed at addressing the powerful social forces that led to the social geography of ASB.

Keywords:   ASB interventions, begging, homelessness, city competitiveness, social control, compounded citizenship, social geography, social forces
