Globalization and Integrated Area Development in European Cities

Frank Moulaert

Contrary to common beliefs, economic globalization does not imply the end of social urban policy. This book argues that urban society and policy-makers have sufficient degrees of freedom available to decide on the social and economic future of deprived neighborhoods. Experiences from several European cities show that neighborhood-based redevelopment strategies offer a more promising future to urban populations than the global-market led slow movement that paralyzes urban policy today.
