Urban regeneration projects are once again deployed in Europe's cities, involving a widening range of actors whilst increasingly depending on private investment. The book explores the relationships, the objectives and strategies of the actors engaging in these projects in cities of three advanced European economies. It researches the outcomes of their interactions as these transform under the influence of changing market circumstances and associated risks. The book focuses on the way this change is reflected on the provision of residential developments within a context of increasingly polarised housing market and urban growth patterns. It argues that although these projects can and do deliver much needed dwellings, the dependency on markets creates a series of consequences which in many cases cause the projects to fall short of the desired socio-economically sustainable outcomes.
