Looking at different European case studies, this section aims to investigate how and why national and local agendas have embedded community entrepreneurship practices in urban development strategies and which outcomes they have experienced. The twofold objective is to question: (1) the policy rationales behind community entrepreneurship agendas, factors and tools that have promoted entrepreneurial initiatives in urban contexts and how these have determined social and economic developments; (2) new theoretical frameworks able to improve the understanding of community engagement practices and outcomes, bridging the knowledge gap on the relationships between entrepreneurship, citizen participation, and possible urban development agendas.
