This book presents a unique overview of urban policy conducted by national authorities in the fifteen 'old' member states of the EU.

The book provides an up-to-date source of information, and will be of importance to anyone involved in the role and development of European cities as well as the formulation and delivery of associated national policies.

This insightful book analyzes the development of cross-border and cross-sector partnerships in a number of European cities and regions. Including, amongst others, Copenhagen, Budapest, Helsinki, Munich and Catalonia, these case studies shed light on the factors determining the success or failure of the coalition-forming process. Over the course of the nine case studies, the following questions are addressed: – What forms of metropolitan and/or regional partnerships can be found? – What are the motives for establishing such partnerships? – What factors contribute to or obstruct cooperation on the metropolitan level? – How is performance of partnership models to be measured? – How are the successes and failures of these attempts to be explained? The comparative analysis of these attempts to establish cooperation between municipalities demonstrates the importance of a regional approach to governance in dealing with challenges that cross the borders of cities.

Industrial tourism presents opportunities, both in terms of income and as a tool of management, for individual firms who open their doors - and consequently their local regions - to the public. But how can these opportunities be organised in a way that enables both the city and the enterprise to take advantage? This book analyzes the conditions for successful industrial tourism development using case studies of Wolfsburg, Cologne, Pays de la Loire, Turin, Shanghai and Rotterdam, and makes astute recommendations for cities and companies with ambitions in this field.

In May 2004, the European Union was enlarged by ten countries. While there has been much research on the existing EU countries' urban policies, as yet, there is very little written in English on the new EU countries' cities and their plans for urban development. This volume brings together case studies from Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Cyprus and Malta to provide a comprehensive overview of these countries' urban policies. These policies are also compared with those of the existing countries and possible syntheses are discussed. The book examines each country's national urban policy, as well as the position, problems and perspectives of their cities. In doing so, it provides new insights not only for the new EU countries, but also for the existing ones.

Globalization and the transition to a knowledge and information society have considerably strengthened the position of cities as nerve centres of the new economy. However, these trends have also sharpened competition between cities. The intense competition for mobile investments has meant that not only local authorities, but also national and regional governments, and even the European Commission, have had to focus their attention on urban policy and development. Yet despite the resulting economic progress, many cities are also dealing with a multitude of social problems and an emerging dual society. This volume compares the cities of Eindhoven, Antwerp, Helsinki, Malmo, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Strasbourg and Utrecht to analyse the strategies that have been developed to combat social problems at the various levels of public administration, private parties, NGOs and community groups. It examines how social problems threaten the attractiveness of cities and how different urban revitalization projects deal with this.
