CPRA 2008: Evaluating the socio-economic impacts of selected regenerated heritage sites in Europe
Sophia Labadi received the 2008 Cultural Policy Research Award for the research proposal Evaluating the socio-economic impacts of selected regenerated heritage sites in Europe, using four case studies from the UK, France and Poland.
The research makes a timely contribution to the critical analysis of socio-economic impact evaluation methods in the selected sites and draws attention to methods of evaluation and their results, in juxtaposition with the goals and expectations of the community. The publication is especially relevant for those working on the social cohesion and integration of communities.
The annual Cultural Policy Research Award was launched in 2004 as a joint venture of ECF and Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and aims at encouraging young European researchers to carry out applied comparative research projects in the cultural policy field.
