Securing an urban renaissance

This chapter examines New Labour's action on anti-social behaviour (ASB) given the emphasis in current urban-regeneration action on improving liveability by reducing crime in Great Britain. It suggests that if anti-social behaviour is concentrated in areas of relative deprivation and is associated with neighbourhood dissatisfaction, then it follows that tackling ASB alongside regeneration work will have mutual benefits. The chapter argues that ASB can be tackled in order to reduce environmental inequality, to reduce crime, or to improve collective efficacy.

Keywords:   anti-social behaviour, New Labour, urban regeneration, liveability, Great Britain, neighbourhood dissatisfaction, environmental inequality, crime reduction, collective efficacy
