This chapter examines whether the practice of urban policy in Great Britain should be geared towards empowerment or incorporation. It explains that unlike other forms of social policy, which are defined through the identification of problems faced by particular groups, urban policy is defined through the places in which those problems find their expression. The chapter discusses the differences in approaches to urban policy within Britain's component nations and suggests that differences have been reinforced by devolution.

Keywords: urban policy; Great Britain; empowerment; incorporation; social policy; devolution
