This special issue contains a selection of papers presented at the conference on "Neighbourhood Effects Studies on the Basis of European Micro-data" which took place in Berlin in spring 2007. It was the aim of this conference to bring together prominent European researchers on neighbourhood effects and to encourage further analysis of the existing European data by looking at research from different countries and different academic disciplines.

The contributions deal with methodological issues and data problems, and each of them focuses on a particular research question dealing with the neighbourhood context. The papers presented illustrate both the current problems and the rich future potential of neighbourhood studies. Galster reflects on the diverse problems in identifying causal relationships that have been pointed out in previous research. Other papers acknowledge the same issues and grapple with their implications. The conference also revealed that throughout Europe exciting new datasets are becoming available with neighbourhood identifiers and characteristics. The papers cover a broad range of topics aside from neighbourhood effects, ranging from ethnic segregation, to child poverty and health-related issues.
