This edited collection, drawn from research undertaken by the European Network for Housing Research, is brought together by Hans Skifter Andersen and Philip Leather, two well respected experts in the field of urban renewal.The chapters, written by contributors from academic and policy making backgrounds, examine experiences with problems of urban decay and housing deterioration across Europe. The book includes case studies of housing renewal problems and policies in England and Wales, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria and France, together with an overview (which also looks at Germany) drawing out the similarities and differences between countries.This edited collection provides an important source of previously unpublished data. It highlights lessons for UK housing renewal policy and will feed into longer-term debates.Housing renewal in Europe is essential reading for students of housing, environmental health and planning, academics interested in the urban renewal debate, and practitioners and policy makers in local government and housing associations.
