1. A silence that lasted more than 2 years ended recently. The website presentation is being overhauled. Two new articles appeared: Anti-Islamische Agitatoren missbrauchen die Geographie des Armuts (Ulfkotte) in German, and France: La relégation des quartiers urbains "sensibles" s'approfondit in French.
2. E-Urban was created as a rallying point for urban redevelopment workers in the field. That remains unchanged. But our experience with city-twinning during the last two years, has learned, that the same kind of information and exchange between practicians is badly needed on the city level, too. Our mission statement will be adapted to these new priorities.
