Cultural identity and sense of the local become central research and policy issues in an integrating European space. This chapter aims to develop a new perspective by proposing a blend of various complementary assessment and evaluation methods as a framework for a more balanced policy analysis. These ideas will be clarified by means of an illustrative application to an urban revitalization project. When addressing the problem of the assessment of urban revitalization projects the choice of the evaluation technique to be adopted plays a preponderant role for the selection of outcomes of projects. The goal of rough set analysis is to recognize possible cause-effect relationships among the available data and to underline the importance and the strategic role of some data and the irrelevance of other data. The fundamental framework of multi-criteria methods is based upon two kinds of input data: an evaluation matrix and a set of political or choice weights for the decision criteria.
