GOODCHILD, Barry, JEANNOT, G. and HICKMAN, Paul (2010). Professions, occupational roles and skills in urban policy : a reworking of the debates in England and France. Urban Studies, 47 (12), 2555-2572.Full text not available from this repository.
The past few years have seen a proliferation of skills analysis in urban regeneration in England. In France, in contrast, researchers have linked questions of skills to the styles and form of public-sector work. This paper reworks the debates in the two countries to provide a comparative analysis of neighbourhood management. There are three main sections and themes: the implications of a bottom–up perspective in the study of policy implementation; the emergence in France of the chef de projet as an ideal type figure of transversal working; and finally, in relation to England, the fragmentation and diversity of policy initiatives, agencies and funding streams. This fragmentation and diversity have implied, in turn, an emphasis on flexibility and generic rather than specialist skills in urban regeneration.
