Social power and the urbanization of water flows of power by E Swyngedouw ( )
12 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,035 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."--BOOK JACKET

The globalized city : economic restructuring and social polarization in European cities ( Book )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 262 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
Technology transfer and industrial change in Europe by Helen Lawton Smith ( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 by Frank Moulaert ( )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 7 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. €

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
Using the analysis of two different cases, a Taiwanese maquiladora of the garment industry in Nicaragua and Sony's manufacturing subsidiary in Wales, we try to verify the existence of the benefits attributed by many scholars to manufacturing foreign direct investment in the peripheral economies. To do so, we analyse in each case three specific questions : -the technology transfer from the manufacturing subsidiary; - the mobility potential of the manufacturing activities of the subsidiary; - the evolution of the quality of the subsidiary in time. The invalidating similarities found in the two cases generate doubts on the contribution of manufacturing foreign direct investment to the development potential of the host economy in the long term
