The paper initially emerged from the papers delivered at the first WP14 workshop at UWE in Bristol in February 2007.

Diverse issues were discussed including key concepts in participation and democracy, impacts of participation, urban regeneration and planning, participatory budgeting, elite relations, tensions, diversity and conflict. A sample of the UWE conference papers discussed can be found at the conference website:
The paper has been taken forward by drawing on papers from other CINEFOGO work packages that have covered similar themes since the UWE conference. Details of all the papers discussed can be found at
