This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the role of crime, community, and urban policy in urban renaissance in Great Britain. It suggests that while urban regeneration, policing, and disorder have become an explicit and interlinked policy agenda, the roots of such connections go deep into British urban history. For this reason it seems unlikely that future attempts at remaking, revitalising, and otherwise rebuilding British cities will turn away from the value of tracing out these connections.
