This book addresses the economic development issues central to neighbourhood renewal. It analyses the economic nature of the problems of deprived neighbourhoods and the policy responses that have developed in response to this within Britain. The analysis centres upon understanding contemporary economic change and the post-1997 period of the New Labour government, but it is also placed within a wider context of longer-term processes of economic restructuring and a history of policy intervention that dates back for well over 40 years. The book focuses on three elements that have dominated policy development and implementation in relation to tackling concentrated deprivation in recent years, i.e., work, enterprise and governance. The other major aspect that is associated with economic development of deprived areas — the physical redevelopment of such areas — is considered in relation to the wider policy agenda and the issues of work, enterprise and governance, but is not pursued as a separate theme.

Keywords:   economic development, economic revival, neighbourhood renewal, deprived neighbourhoods, Britain, economic change, New Labour, economic restructuring, policy agenda
