Abstract

This book is about how cities respond to new governance challenges. These challenges may take a number of forms: policy challenges arising from changed socio-economic conditions, institutional challenges linked to changes in how decisions are made and ideational challenges associated with new understandings of urban governance itself. Whatever the form of challenge, the responses open to city governments include devising new interventions and/or adapting existing governance arrangements. This book explores the processes that shape these responses, analyses the emergent governance arrangements and considers how they influence or are influenced by established democratic practices.
