|This Best Practice is one of
Best Practices for Human Settlements
presented in the MOST Clearing House
Best Practices Database.
Quartiers en Crise is a network of towns promoting the integrated approach to the revitalisation of disadvantaged areas, with the involvement of politicians, technicians and local residents in that process.
It also co-ordinates a number of European transnational projects involving its members: following the successful three year LIA project (Local Integration/Partnership Action), the network co-ordinated the project 'Changing the culture of the organisation' in 2000. It is currently co-ordinating two more projects: 'Training for partnership against discrimination' and 'Acting locally for employment', which is a transnational project aimed to capture and disseminate examples of good practice concerning the creation of employment initiatives as part of an integrated approach to the revitalisation of disadvantaged neighbourhoods.
Quartiers en Crise is also partner in a Leonardo project developing new skills in low income areas, co-ordinated by Losfor, a French housing organisation, and a project on 'Setting Standards for a Social Europe, a multi-dimensional approach to combating social exclusion', with the European Social Network, a network of directors of social services.
The network issues a monthly Newssheet covering internal and external issues of interest to its members.
