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 EuropeanUnion ( European Commission [EC] 2007; EC 2008, Parysek 2010a , 2010b; EuropeanUnion [EU] 2011; Parysek 2013 ; EU 2015; EC 2016).

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.
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. The seminal work in the field was the 1986 Transitions from Authoritarian Rule by G. O’Donnell & P. Schmitter (1986) . The work did

To tackle this situation, the EuropeanUnion 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
