This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on post-Second World War restructuring of large housing estates in Europe. The case studies presented in this book have clarified several issues relevant to housing restructuring. These include place making, social cohesion, social mix, displacement effects, and collaborative planning. This chapter concludes that structured advice and knowledge transfer are needed to find the correct balance between seeking to influence external factors and the pursuit of complex, local-governance approaches in restructuring initiatives.
