They lead the way in development, but they also deal with many problems. This attitude was at least the basis for adopting an urban policy and determining its principal aims, tasks and strategies by the European Union ( European Commission [EC] 2007; EC 2008, Parysek 2010a , 2010b; European Union [EU] 2011; Parysek 2013 ; EU 2015; EC 2016).

City-region governance in transitional contexts: the case of the BRICS

wider literatures on transitions, post-colonialism and post-socialism with more specific literatures on city-region governance and on the particularities of national and sub-national contexts. Literatures There is an established literature on regime transition, which began in the 1980s as a hopeful response to processes of democratisation across many parts of the world, including in Eastern Europe, Latin America and Africa.

Measuring citizen participation in urban regeneration: a reflection on the construction of the participation index for the Bip/Zip programme in Lisbon

last few years met with an unstable banking system, the growth of fiscal deficit, public debt, and unemployment. To tackle this situation, the European Union pressured the Portuguese government to adopt austerity measures, which were eventually agreed with the Troika (International Monetary Fund, European Central Bank, and European Commission) in 2011 under the requirement of a €78 billion bailout package ( Caldas 2012 ; OECD 2015 ). The main goal of the Memorandum of Understanding on Specific Economic Conditionality (MoU) between Portugal and the Troika was to

noticeable in the period after 2004, when Poland joined the European Union (EU). In this regard, immediately after the establishment of the new system, it was important to draw a clear difference from the old one. This battle had to be conducted at every possible level.

Disentangling the nexus of global intermediaries: the case of bus rapid transit

, while A. Roy (2010) takes up the charge slightly differently, studying the poor and the powerless through World Bank agents that manage poverty and their associated circuits of profit and investment. Similarly, N. Theodore and J. Peck’s (2011) study the OECD and its role as a selector and disseminator of neoliberalism and E. Rapoport (2015) presents exploration of the global intelligence corps, an elite group of international architects, engineers and planners based in Europe and North America shuttling notions of sustainable urbanism around the globe.
