Social power and the urbanization of water : flows of power by E Swyngedouw( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Social Power and the Urbanization of Water takes the circulation of water as a lense through which to analyse how the natural and social fuse together in the process of urbanization. In addition, excavating the circulation of water provides a vehicle to examine the relations between social, political, and economic power which give structure to the urbanization process. These power relations become embodied in and expressed by the particular forms through which water becomes urban. This analysis, in turn, allows light to be cast on who controls the transformation and appropriation of nature and the city's environment. The city of Guayaquil in Ecuador, where 600,000 people lack easy access to potable water, provides the empirical background for this analysis. Historical political-ecological research is combined with an analysis of key contemporary power brokers who organize a highly uneven and deeply unjust urban water circulation system."--Jacket
The globalized city : economic restructuring and social polarization in European cities( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the dynamics that have accompanied the implementation of large-scale Urban Development Projects (UDPs) in nine European cities within the European Union (EU). It contributes to the analysis of the relationship between urban restructuring and social exclusion/integration in the context of the emergence of the European-wide 'new' regimes of urban governance. These regimes reflect the reawakening of neo-liberal policy and the rise of a New Urban Policy favouring private investments and deregulation of property and labour markets. The book provides a panoramic view of urban change in some of Europe's greatest cities."--Jacket

This book critically examines the phenomenon and the consequences of the increasing inter-dependence between industry, universities and national laboratories. It explores the contrasts and similarities between the patterns of formal and informal links in a technologically dynamic industry (electronic components) with those in a traditional industry (flow measurement) in the UK, France and Belgium. It uses evidence from interviews with firms, academics and industry organisations in the three countries to identify the major factors which regulate links

Can neighbourhoods save the city? : community development and social innovation( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For decades, neighbourhoods been pivotal sites of social, economic and political exclusion processes, and civil society initiatives, attempting bottom-up strategies of re-development and regeneration. In many cases these efforts resulted in the creation of socially innovative organizations, seeking to satisfy the basic human needs of deprived population groups, to increase their political capabilities and to improve social interaction both internally and between the local communities, the wider urban society and political world. SINGOCOM - Social INnovation GOvernance and COMmunity building - is the acronym of the EU-funded project on which this book is based. Sixteen case studies of socially-innovative initiatives at the neighbourhood level were carried out in nine European cities, of which ten are analysed in depth and presented here. The book compares these efforts and their results, and shows how grass-roots initiatives, alternative local movements and self-organizing urban collectives are reshaping the urban scene in dynamic, creative, innovative and empowering ways. It argues that such grass-roots initiatives are vital for generating a socially cohesive urban condition that exists alongside the official state-organized forms of urban governance. The book is thus a major contribution to socio-political literature, as it seeks to overcome the duality between community-development studies and strategies, and the solidarity-based making of a diverse society based upon the recognising and maintaining of citizenship rights. It will be of particular interest to both students and researchers in the fields of urban studies, social geography and political science. €
The post-political and its discontents : spaces of depoliticisation, spectres of radical politics( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our age is celebrated as the triumph of liberal democracy. Old ideological battles have been decisively resolved in favour of freedom and the market. We are told that we have moved 'beyond left and right' that we are 'all in this together'. Any remaining differences are to be addressed through expert knowledge, consensual deliberation and participatory governance. Yet the 'end of history' has also been marked by widespread disillusion with mainstream politics and a rise in nationalist and religious fundamentalisms. And now an explosion of popular protests is challenging technocratic regulation and the power of markets in the name of democracy itself. This collection makes sense of this situation by critically engaging with the influential theory of 'the post-political' developed by Chantal Mouffe, Jacques Rancière, Slavoj Zizek and others. Through a multi-dimensional and fiercely contested assessment of contemporary depoliticisation, <strong>The Post-Political and Its Discontents</strong> urges us to confront the closure of our political horizons and re-imagine the possibility of emancipatory change. Key Features * Interrogates the theoretical literature on the post-political - its value and limits, its internal tensions and the possibility of creative syntheses with other approaches *Critically engages with multiple dimensions of contemporary depoliticisation, including multiculturalism, philanthropy, ecology, participatory development, public-private partnerships and the regulation of biotechnology *Assesses the emancipatory potential of anti-austerity protests, the Occupy movement and other political struggles in the context of continuing processes of post-politicisation

La maquiladora & the branch-plant l'investissement direct étranger manufacturier comme moteur de développement? : enseignements tirés de l'analyse de deux cas by Lucas van Wunnik( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans cette étude, nous tentons, à partir de l'analyse de deux cas très dissemblables, une maquiladora taiwanaise de l'habillement au Nicaragua et une filiale manufacturière de Sony au Pays de Galles, de vérifier l'existence des bienfaits généralement attribués à l'investissement direct étranger manufacturier dans les économies périphériques. Pour cela, nous analysons, dans chaque cas, trois questions concrètes : - la diffusion technologique à partir de la filiale manufacturière; - le potentiel de mobilité des activités manufacturières de la filiale; l'évolution de la qualité de la filiale dans le temps. Les similitudes négatives que nous retrouvons dans les deux cas nous amènent à avoir des doutes quant à la contribution de l'investissement direct étranger manufacturier au potentiel de développement à long terme de l'économie d'accueil
