The aim of this project is to explore and establish the appropriate cross-cultural research methods for regeneration of large (former) social housing estates. The methods are intended to be used at different levels of town planning practice and in the establishment of a system for social housing regeneration in Slovenia and CEE countries. In order to establish such methods the following aspects will be investigated: (i) the key variables that structure the demarcation between different approaches to housing regeneration, (ii) the consequent influence of these variable on the efficiency of urban renewal processes examined through selected (good practice) case studies in UK, Holland and Germany. A methodology for a cross-cultural transfer of information will be drawn and urban design frameworks for housing regeneration projects in Slovenia will be proposed. This research is intended to contribute new knowledge in the following areas: (i) In a better understanding of the costs and benefits of chosen ''''State of the Art'''' good practice case study through a structured evaluation approach which will be of benefit to community groups, local and central government and urban design professionals. (ii) In the development of new ''''combined'''' approaches adaptable to future housing regeneration projects in Slovenia and possibly in other CEE countries. (iii) In the development of cross-cultural research methods which could be applied in similar situations elsewhere.
