European Territorial Governance

European Territorial Governance, Edited by: Wil Zonneveld, Jochem de Vries and Leonie Janssen-Jansen Published: October 2012 The 1990s ended with the birth of the concept of European spatial planning, which became a unique catalyst of change in Europe and in EU member states and regions. This book examines both the evolution of territorial governance at a European and transnational level and how this new type of governance affects planning at the local and regional level. It not only brings together a number of papers written by academic scholars but also several reflective contributions by practitioners. As such, this book seeks to contribute to various theoretical and empirical discussions: the institutionalization of European policy and integration; the Europeanisation of policy and planning; multi-level and multi-actor policy making; the contested nature of the knowledge base of European territorial governance and the role of visualization in politics and planning. Authors include: Kai Böhme, Ed Dammers, Simin Davoudi, Stefanie Dühr, David Evers, Andreas Faludi, Erik Gløersen, Enrico Gualini, Moritz Lennert, João Mourato, Jacques Robert and Mark Tewdwr-Jones and the editors.
