Chapter 39: Urban and regional governance
This chapter investigates the evolution of the study of local and regional governance, from an organizational towards an institutional perspective and later on to a political economy approach before the governance perspective emerged. This trajectory applies primarily to the study of local government and urban politics. Regions were for a long period of time “the forgotten tier of government” but have gained more scholarly attention along with the consolidation of the European Union and the growing role of regions in international arenas. Regional governance as a theoretical model is less developed than the urban governance framework.
