The Illicit and Illegal in Regional and Urban Governance and Development: Corrupt Places

Published at: 3 October 2017

The Illicit and Illegal in Regional and Urban Governance and Development: Corrupt Places is the title of a new book edited by Francesco Chiodelli (Gran Sasso Science Institute), Tim Hall (University of Winchester) and Ray Hudson (Durham University), and published by Routledge [280 pp; Ebook: £24.49; Hardback: £105]

The book is a multidisciplinary volume that aims at questioning the dominant discussions of urban and regional governance and development that have been rooted largely (or entirely) in the realm of licit and legal actors. The book investigates these issues with reference to a variety of different geographical contexts, including, but not limited to, places traditionally considered to be associated with illegal activities and extensive illicit markets, such as some regions and countries in the so-called Global South or in the Mediterranean basin.
