AccueilEuropean cities and the post-crisis context : social and policy innovations

*  *  *

Publié le vendredi 10 novembre 2017 par Anastasia Giardinelli

Résumé

Since the crisis, cities have not only been “the context” but also “collective actors” with particular strengths, weaknesses, and resources to deploy. The aim of this international workshop is to elaborate a common reflection on the future of EU cities by focusing on institutional innovation, via new tools and mechanisms for policy making which have been developed by cities in order to cope with the consequences of the crisis (new forms of inequality, housing shortage, gentrification and displacement, new difficulties for the delivery of public services…).

Presentation

The post-2008 global financial and economic crisis has impacted the economic, social, spatial and institutional dimensions of urban environments, with significant implications for the present and future quality of life in European cities. A macro view of the crisis is predominant in current debates, as well as an economic framing. Hence, an understanding of the mature responses at the city level in a comparative perspective is lacking.

Since the crisis, cities have not only been “the context” but also “collective actors” with particular strengths, weaknesses, and resources to deploy. The aim of this international workshop is to elaborate a common reflection on the future of EU cities by focusing on institutional innovation, via new tools and mechanisms for policy making which have been developed by cities in order to cope with the consequences of the crisis (new forms of inequality, housing shortage, gentrification and displacement, new difficulties for the delivery of public services…).

On this background, three research questions will be explored during the workshop:

  • What have been the spatial consequences of the crisis on cities?
  • How have cities coped with these consequences, in relation to institutional innovation via policy tools and mechanisms?
  • To what extent new forces of governance, characterized by more cooperation, networking and partnering between various stakeholders have emerged?

These social and policy innovations at the city level will be explored through case studies from three main policy areas: urban effects of economic issues, housing and neighbourhood policies/environmental issues.
