Fragmented Governance Architecture of Contemporary Urban Development
Consequences of neoliberalism and entrepreneurial urban governance seem to be very clearly visible in some cities through scattered property-led spatial developments and investments. While the entrepreneurialisation of municipal governance is widely acknowledged in the scholarly literature, the extent and format of institutional and organisational structures that accompany neoliberal ideological shifts and market transitions often remain unclear. In this IRS International Lecture on Society and Space, Prof. Dr. Tuna Taşan-Kok will argue that entrepreneurial urban governance creates fragmented governance architectures in order to accommodate complex institutional and organisational arrangements in market-driven urban development. She will use Amsterdam, a city once known to have a ‘consolidated system’, to illustrate how and in what ways governance systems are fragmenting.
