Toxteth riots remembered

Today when we learn that the The European Union has offered France €50 million to help rebuild its inner cities, following more than a fortnight of violence and unrest in Paris. Liverpool is hosting URBACT a major European Commission conference about urban regeneration, which will be attended by a delegation from France

Twenty years ago violence erupted on the streets of Toxteth, Liverpool.

It was widely argued that like the current problems in Paris, that the riots in Liverpool happened because of chronic unemployment, racism, bad housing and poor education in an area with a large population of black and mixed-race residents.

So what will Paris learn from the Liverpool's experience
