Sports as an instrument for community development and urban renewal.

Project Details


Since a couple of years, urban renewal is considered to be a priority in most European states. One of the aims of these programs for urban renewal is community development. In this research project, an inventory and analysis of these programs is made. Subsequently, on the basis of a delphi-research the attitude is mapped out of Flemish urban policy-makers, with regard to sports as an instrument of community development. Finally, specific policy proposals will be formulated.
