Development of contemporary cities is determined by many different factors. The most important among them is globalization and technological progress. Major cities all over the world have been confronted with two vital inter-linked questions: how can social and spatial disparities and the resulting societal and spatial fragmentation be mitigated? How can local economic growth, international and inter-regional competitiveness and new employment opportunities be stabilized or achieved? Traditional, sectoral approaches to meet these and other challenges have often proved to be expensive and inefficient or even were a total failure. Therefore, new forms of urban areas development and new forms of governance have gained importance by involving different actors in decision making processes. The lecture is devoted to changing approaches to urban management, new techniques and instruments.
In the sequence of lctures the integrated urban governance is addressed from the perspective of development problems that must be solved by public administration bodies. Issue of coordination between policies is discussed with use of examples from different European countries. Methods of horizontal integration between policy sectors and vertical intergovernmental integration are discussed. The list of specific topics covered by lectures is as follows: new urban challenges in a globalizing world; Integrated Urban Governance - benefits and costs ; public participation; political and organizational arrangements beyond and within city boundaries; capacity building; organizational and structural changes; the role of the public and stakeholder groups; political and administrative decision makers: the role of leadership.
