This paper discusses policy implications for building an urban future for black communities in Europe. Today, non-European peoples, from Africa, the Caribbean, and Asia are urban dwellers in nearly all the key cities and member states of the European Community. As cities jostle for a place in the competitive arenas of the new millennium, major policy questions of social inclusion and integration will have to be answered.

The following policies and priorities are discussed in relation to improving social conditions for minority groups:

  • Introduction and context
  • Capacity building for development
  • Racial equality of opportunity
  • Economic equity
  • Britain and international exchange
