This chapter examines one of the ways in which urban regeneration in Great Britain under New Labour has sought to address social exclusion and facilitate social inclusion through the involvement of local communities in regeneration partnerships. It sets out a theoretically informed approach to analysing and making sense of recent community-led initiatives designed to address urban social exclusion. The chapter argues that British urban policy since the early 1990s, particularly so since 1997, has attempted to restructure the terrain of governance by seeking to change the ways in which communities govern themselves.
