Devolved governance and the economic problems of deprived areas: the cases of Scotland, Wales and four English Regions
North, David J., Syrett, Stephen and Etherington, David (2007) Devolved governance and the economic problems of deprived areas: the cases of Scotland, Wales and four English Regions. Technical Report. Joseph Rowntree Foundation, York.
A study that links two of the main policy agendas of the last ten years: devolution of power, and policies to tackle deprivation. The study looks at: how far the economic and social aspects of regeneration are being effectively linked; the extent to which political devolution in Scotland, Wales and London is bringing greater strategic attention to the needs of deprived areas; successful initiatives and how they have worked. The main report is supported by two additional volumes: Devolved governance and the economic problems of deprived areas: The cases of Scotland, Wales and four English Regions (PDF, 1.6MB) looks in detail at the governance arrangements in six study areas and their impact on tackling the economic and employment needs of people living in deprived places. Interventions to tackle the economic needs of deprived areas: Analysis of six policy case studies (PDF, 544KB) examines six policy initiatives that show good practice of joint working and effective linking of economic and social objectives.
