Territorial Policy and Governance: Alternative Paths.pdf
In response to both policy and conceptual debates, alternative narratives have begun to emerge about territorial governance and policy-making. As local and regional policy actors strive to respond to the geographically uneven effects of the economic crises of the early twenty-first century, a crucial question emerges: what are the opportunities and challenges presented by alternative forms of territorially-based governance and policy?
The aim of this edited volume therefore is critically to explore the opportunities and challenges presented by different forms of territorial policy and governance. Drawing on conceptual debates and empirical research from the UK and other international contexts, the contributors engage with issues around the politics and governance of territorial development, economic development, planning and regeneration, and the environment.
