This article discusses participatory community regeneration programme through a discussion of risks, accountability and crisis in devolved Wales. The analysis shows how it became captured by a New Labour policy agenda shifting the priorities from citizen representation to ‘community activation’ It also demonstrates that the state attempts to offset repeated failures to address economic crisis by a series of political-level ‘fixes’ fixes take the form of risk management measures, which the paper discusses using the concepts of the risk society and reflexive government
