Anna Christmann: Von Government zu Governance? Acht europäische Metropolregionen im Vergleich

  • Anna Christmann
Part of the Zeitschrift für Vergleichende Politikwissenschaft Comparative Governance and Politics book series (ZfVP)

Zusammenfassung :

Der vorliegende Artikel geht von der allgemeinen These eines Trends von Government zu Governance aus und testet diese anhand einer vergleichenden Studie von acht europäischen Metropolregionen. Urbane Räume werden aufgrund eines anhaltenden Bevölkerungszuwachses immer wichtigere Akteure in einer globalisierten Welt und stehen daher zunehmend im Zentrum von Governance Studien, die entsprechend des New Regionalism ebenfalls von einem Trend zu netzwerkorientierten Entscheidungsstrukturen ausgehen. Die hier vorgelegte Studie zeigt jedoch auf, dass keinesfalls von einem eindeutigen Trend gesprochen werden kann, sondern je nach Kontext unterschiedliche Entwicklungen regionaler politischer Systeme zu beobachten sind. Die geopolitische Lage, das nationale Regierungssystem und die Intensität des Problemdrucks werden als entscheidende Faktoren identifiziert, die beeinflussen, ob neue Formen von Government oder Governance entstehen oder bestehende Strukturen beibehalten werden.

From government to governance? Comparing eight European metropolitan areas

Abstract :

The article starts out from the general assumption of a trend from government to governance and tests it by means of a comparative study of eight European metropolitan areas. Due to the continuous growth of the population, urban areas are turning into increasingly relevant actors in a globalized world. They have thus increasingly become the focal point of governance studies. In line with the new regionalism, governance studies also assume a trend toward networkoriented decision-making structures. However, the analysis shows that there is no clear trend. Rather, the regional political systems develop in a different manner depending on the context. According to the author, new forms of government or governance arise or existing structures are maintained depending on the geopolitical location and national system of government as well as on how compelling the problem is.
