Winnipeg's inner city : current and future research directions workshop proceedings (November 1993)
MetadataShow full item record
Since the late 1980s, it has been documented that Canadian inner cities have been experiencing a reverse in a thirty-year period of decline, characterized by changes in demographic, family, cultural and other socio-economic characteristics. The trend has created a resurgence of literature on the topic of inner cities. Knowledge pertaining to ongoing change and improvement in the inner city, however, remains far from complete. Despite widely available theoretical discussions of change, there are, for example, fewer "empirical observations accounting for change and improvement in the central city's built environment and its occupants and activities."1 An accurate and full understanding of the inner city is required in order to determine the need and form of intervention for renewal, and the suitability of existing renewal programs and public policies. Since its inception (1969) the Institute has undertaken and has been involved in numerous empirical and other initiatives related to inner-city issues in Winnipeg. This Workshop on Current and Future Research Directions in Winnipeg's Inner City was undertaken as a component of IUS's present activities related to inner cities. The Workshop was conducted to gather feedback on current inner-city research initiatives underway in Winnipeg, to discuss how such research might better be conducted and used, to facilitate the co-ordination of inner-city related research, and to provide guidance and direction for those undertaking research on this topic.
