The Horizon 2020 research project RELOCAL departs from the premise that “place” can precondition the local action chances in promoting fairness and well-being.

In 2017, the RELOCAL researchers selected 33 locality-based/targeted case studies from all over Europe that represent different welfare regimes, rural and urban areas, disadvantaged and better-off localities and various cultural and historical contexts.

Fieldwork took place in 2018 and the first draft case study reports are becoming available in 2019. A quick review of 8 draft case studies reveals some early findings that may already lead to preliminary conclusions.
