‘Pathways to integration’: tackling social exclusion on Merseyside

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the regeneration initiative in Merseyside, England, designed to address the issues of social exclusion and concentrated disadvantage. A distinctive feature of this program is the so-called Pathways to Integration priority, which involves the targeting of a significant tranche of spending towards areas of the city-region experiencing particularly marked concentrations of disadvantage. The result of this initiative showed that communities are willing to engage in policy if genuine spaces for engagement are provided.
