Abstract

This is a master’s level course on urban policy and governance. The structure of the course is divided into two halves, after an introductory seminar. First, it introduces some of the main approaches to urban policy and governance as they have developed in the US and Europe. These include: urban regime theory, urban growth machine, local government studies, and examinations of decentralisation reforms. Second, the course explores how well these theories can be applied to large non-western cities; namely, São Paulo, Beijing, New Delhi and Moscow. In each of these cities a number of governance challenges are examined, according to specific themes, using some of the theories introduced in the first part of the course. Finally, some of the strengths and weaknesses of the theories are considered in light of the case studies, and with the help of seminar discussions we consider how they might contribute to further theorising of urban policy and governance beyond the west.
