Examines the research agenda and the policy implications of 'area effects' for British housing policy. Focuses on policies for the regeneration of deprived housing areas.; Questions the contention that area effects operating in deprived areas may be a source of social exclusion. Sets this in the broader context of the labour market and housing; systems which have created spatial concentrations of poverty. Examines the key propositions concerning area effects focusing on the conditions for the effects to exist, and; the mechanisms through which the effects come into play. Discusses measures which might be pursued to ameliorate outcomes due to area effects. Suggests that accepting the; implications of area effects offers a strong challenge to conventional thinking about area regeneration. Concludes that the role of area effects suggests a renewed centrality; of many aspects of housing policy in combating social exclusion.
