The chapter provides an overview of the legacy and emergence of Area-based Initiatives in England and Germany. In England a considerable history of area-targeted policy approaches to the concentration of economic deprivation in cities can be noted in concept Germany recently discovered the need for a national initiative for disadvantaged neighbourhoods. The chapter also reviews the evolution of urban policies during a time in both countries in which two Social Democratic Parties had taken over central government responsibilities and were actively transforming the conception of welfare delivery in both countries.
