17 Re-applicable Tools Community policing & Security Agency Door-keepers Control and eviction of illegal tenants (Zero tolerance) Fixation and repairs/self-help repairs of free flats (and common spaces) – new tenants Repairs of front doors, functional lighting Security Strong NGO partners with good knowledge of the locality & residents Fieldworkers & police assistants Leisure clubs for children and youth Public service for unemployed people Social Services & Community Active engagement of the tenants Investments into revitalization of houses Self-help cleaning of public spaces Self-help repairs of houses Self-help repairs of flats Housing

18 Sustainability? Identified Threats Crime and fear as a consequence of the drug business Passivity of police partially due to restricted budget – no or low police presence in the localities; excuses like we are monitoring situation, we are waiting for a big fish No newcomers due to negative reputation of the excluded areas Property devastation – no further investments = no future Budget cuts in state social support – increasing debts leading to evictions
