A multidisciplinary approach increases complexity Regeneration covers many disciplines and policy areas because of the complex nature of the problems and their range. This breadth of policy means that many individuals come at the issue from different disciplines and perspectives. This multidisciplinary basis to regeneration means that it has many traditions and schools of thought and many perspectives that have a different emphasis. This creates tensions and increasing complexities, for instance the ongoing tension which emerges between those who favour social approaches to regeneration as opposed to economic approaches.

These forms are based on a therapeutic impulse, usually mixed with the state’s and businesses’ utilitarian and bureaucratic reflexes (Nolan 1998: 283). The practical implications of these cultural shifts, when mixed with the economic trends outlined above, mean that regeneration practitioners often hold a double-edged sword: working with people as individuals or communities to overcome depressing and debilitating circumstances, but at the same time, potentially policing and controlling them, as they react to the circumstances in which they find themselves.

Complexity is seen by many as a problem, a barrier, a hindrance to more effective working. In short it’s a negative. Complexity on the ground is commonly expressed in a sense that there are too many partnerships and meetings, many and competing views on the way forward and too many targets and difficulties in proving the real quality worth of activity.
