The experiment is performed in a situation where the labour market is fallilng seriouisly and where the dependency on social aid is large. It is an area with serious problems.

Another goeal is to develope a structure furthering dialogue between authorities and residents.

The experiment has two main ingredients. The one is what we call the Action Plan Process and the other is Linkwork. In practice the first one is dependent on the secon one. We describe these methods and reflect on their usefulness and relevance. We also discuss what appears os be applicable in a wider context. Metropolitan districts where the inhabitants feel alienated and neglected are no new phenomenon. (Less)
