Abstract

This chapter explores the ecology of transatlantic commonalities in regeneration programmes through a series of 3 case studies: Baltimore; New York; and Detroit. Through these, the chapter considers: the growing power of cities and metropolitan regions; the spectre of inner city decline in urban areas and increasing marginalisation in the post-recession period; the mainstreaming of area-based initiatives through Empowerment Zones and Enterprise Communities Initiatives (EZECs); and the role of Community Development Corporations in achieving holistic regeneration.
