Metropolregionen, Wissensregion und Governance


Leitfrage der Abhandlung ist, ob und wie Metropolregionen das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen territorial orientierten und funktional orientierten Governance-Regimen lösen können, wenn sie verstärkt auf die Entwicklungsfigur der „Wissensregion“ setzen. Diskutiert wird, was Metropolregionen ausmacht, welche Anforderungen an sie durch die Funktion „Wissensregion“ gestellt werden, welche Konflikte zwischen territorialen und funktionalen Governance-Regimen auftreten können und wie sie in den deutschen Metropolregionen zurzeit offenbar gelöst werden.

Regional Structural Change and Resilience
From Lignite Mining to Tourism in the Lusatian Lakeland

economic decline involved, at the time, co-ordinating the large-scale rehabilitation of the mines with other endeavours that were aimed at developing the economy. In this way, a lakeland was created with the goal of establishing a basis for supra-regional tourism. Chapter 2 introduces the conceptual foundations of the present contribution. It begins by discussing the concepts of resilience, vulnerability and regional structural change. This debate is followed by a deeper theoretical analysis of sectoral and regional co-ordination policies. Chapter 3 is devoted to a

Explaining Metropolitan Governance. The Case of Spain

, leisure) provided by the mobility of the inhabitants. The challenges posed by the metropolitan phenomena are diverse: social (combating inequalities, ensuring access to public services), economic and financial (guaranteeing competitiveness and efficiency), territorial and environmental (the management of urban explosion, mobility and waste), political and institutional (the co-ordination of policies and services, democratic representation). In this article I focus on the last question: how to govern metropolitan areas? What are the models of metropolitan governance

Cluster Policies, Organising Capacity and Regional Resilience: Evidence from German Case Studies

by all stakeholders and levels of governance, requiring substantial horizontal and vertical co-ordination. If this co-ordination cannot be achieved, a region might end up with an incoherent cluster policy in which isolated actors compete in applying isolated measures promoting different parts of a given cluster, or even pursuing conflicting aims. Complexity: Clusters may be promoted with single instruments like targeted incubators, industry networks or business plan competitions. However, the complex character of clusters demands the use of multiple instruments

Planning for Cross-Border Territories: The Role Played by Spatial Information

side of the border. Moreover, tools differ from country to country and require co-ordination, which makes cooperation particularly complex. Thus, cross-border territories are testing beds, as well as laboratories, where convergence and further integration are put to the test. According to Amilhat-Szary and Fourny (2006 : 9), Europe, which began inventing and disseminating the system of state borders at the time of the treaties of Westphalia on, is also the continent that has gone the furthest in removing internal borders functions ( Richardson 2006 : 203).

/or fiscal resources. The development of effective and co-ordinated polycentricity in governance is thus critical and whilst there is some empirical evidence to suggest that there is a positive correlation between diverse, polycentric governance and regional economic performance ( Brookings Institution/London School of Economics/Deutsche Bank Research 2010 ), more research is needed to understand why this is, how it might vary in different national contexts and how appropriate degrees of cross-level and cross-scale co-ordination and support can be achieved in practice

“Disorganised Devolution”: Reshaping Metropolitan Governance in England in a Period of Austerity

Government. In 2006, the UK Treasury confirmed that, “there is significant empirical evidence to suggest that the co-ordination of economic policies across the city-region is conducive to economic performance” (HM Treasury 2006 : 13). The council leaders of a number of key cities outside of London, such as Birmingham, Sheffield, Leeds, Nottingham and Newcastle, were also emerging as strong advocates for greater devolution to metropolitan areas ( Core Cities 2002 ). Indeed, over the last 15 years, this ‘Core Cities’ Group has become an increasingly influential network

One more inventory or spatial planning – which better serves the goals of the Carpathian Convention in historic towns?

communications; publicly important undertakings. The explanatory part includes three maps: the co-ordination map (scale 1:5000); the map of the planned conversion of agricultural land into non-agricultural uses (scale 1:5000) and the map presenting the wider spatial context of the town at a scale 1:25000. The legally binding part refers to the cultural heritage at the very beginning when the protection of urban and architectural as well as natural values and townscape are declared as the main aims of the plan of spatial development. Detailed rules on heritage protection
