THE TEAM

This publication presents two major reports on violence and social exclusion in disadvantaged urban areas. Both reports examine policies, processes and measures undertaken to overcome social exclusion and build social cohesion, particularly with young people.
 
The first report looks at the extent and cause of urban deprivation and main spatial patterns in Europe  and how this is linked to youth violence.

The second concentrates on the United Kingdom, and examines the transition from the welfare state to stakeholder (welfare) society and the new socio-political and socio-economic structures devised to regenerate social cohesion in disadvantaged neighbourhoods.
