This chapter examines the status and meaning of the term community in the context of New Labour's urban policy in Great Britain. It discusses the government's launch of a series of reform to reconstruct the relationships between civil society and the state based on new modern principles of flexibility, and evaluates the role that communities may play in the renaissance of Britain's cities. The chapter explores the processes involved in defining communities and argues that despite the complexities and contingencies of community formation, all communities are characterised by boundaries of inclusion and exclusion.
