Local policy solutions to improve social and economic conditions in disadvantaged urban areas have emerged in different European Member States and in different economic and institutional contexts. The ELSES study has focused on those programmes and projects which tackle the exclusion of disadvantaged communities primarily by means of generating and securing local employment, increasing income opportunities and reviving the social and economic fabric of distressed areas.
The research was driven by three main objectives:
- to analyse and evaluate the scope and impact of innovative local policy solutions in selected European urban regeneration areas,
- to understand how institutional and organisational structures condition the effects and impacts produced,
- to encourage the exchange of effective policy solutions across Europe.
