This chapter sets developments in UK urban policy in a European context. It examines a growing focus on neighbourhoods, which has been closely related to a concern with social exclusion within European societies and with a growing recognition that it is taking distinct spatial forms in danger of becoming deeply embedded in those societies. It compares area-based responses in England, France, and Denmark and the differing national context that has shaped them. It sets out the ways in which these programmes have identified the problems addressed, selected neighbourhoods for intervention, and gone about tackling the problems. It explores both the expectations and the manifestations of community involvement, given that resident participation has been identified in all three programmes as part of their respective solutions to place-based disadvantage.

Keywords:   urban policy, European context, neighbourhoods, social exclusion, England, France, Denmark, community involvement, place-based disadvantage
