Welfare Reform on the Web (April 2003): Community Regeration and Development - Overseas

THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE LOCAL AND THE LIMITS OF CONTEMPORARY COMMUNITY BUILDING IN THE UNITED STATES

J. C. Fraser and others

Urban Affairs Review, vol.38, 2003, p. 417-445

Treats community building as a spatial practice in the context of current urban restructuring, and challenges many of the commonly assumed benefits of this form of antipoverty initiative. Argues that community-building initiatives occur in a globalised context which allows people other than local residents to promote their own interests.
