TL;DR: Ekers et al. as mentioned in this paper trace the major modalities of suburban governance through a review of the extant literature on the matter and make a case for each and how they function and interrelate.
Abstract: Ekers M., Hamel P. and Keil R. Governing suburbia: modalities and mechanisms of suburban governance, Regional Studies. This paper traces the major modalities of suburban governance through a review of the extant literature on the matter. Based on the existing debate on suburban governance it appears that three modalities can be differentiated: the state, capital accumulation and private authoritarianism. A case is made for each and how they function and interrelate is developed. What are the universal and particular forces shaping suburbanization processes in different urban-regions? It is also argued that governance itself needs to be used in critical sense by extending its meaning towards issues of suburbanism, not just the process merely of suburbanization. Ekers M., Hamel P. and Keil R. 管治郊区：郊区管治的模式与机制. 区域研究. 本文通过大量文献回顾来追溯郊区管治的主要模式。基于现有郊区管治的争论，可以识别出三种模式：政府、资本积累和私人独裁主义。文中为每种模式给出了一个案例，而且探讨了这些模式是如何发挥作用和相互联系的。在不同的城市区域，塑造郊区化过程的普遍和独特驱动力是什么？本文还认为需要批判性地使用管治这个概念，将其含义扩展到郊区主义的各种问题，而不仅仅是郊区化的过程。 郊区化 郊区主义 管治 全球性郊区 ...
TL;DR: The transformation of metropolitan governance cannot be understood without adopting a double reading frame referring on the one hand to the actual content of policies aimed at the metropolitan scale, their raison d'etre, the macroeconomic logics that underlie them, and on the other hand, the configurations of actors and institutions which evolved strongly in the last 20 years as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: The transformation of metropolitan governance cannot be understood without adopting a double reading frame referring on the one hand to the actual content of policies aimed at the metropolitan scale, their raison d’etre, the macro-economic logics that underlie them, and on the other hand to the configurations of actors and institutions which evolved strongly in the last 20 years. Essentially, the metropolitan level, beyond the municipal, progressively became (and not without conflict or opposition) the new territory of reference for political leaders as well as for economic ones. Big cities bring pressures for a new configuration of intergovernmental relations. In this institutional and political flux, the main challenge of public policy-making is to stabilize a place for exchanges between institutions. There seem to be an emerging political space at the metropolitan scale, where collective action and claims for local democracy unfold. The recent reforms have created more and more organized local and metropolitan societies. Metropolitanization also means an internal reconstitution of the political sphere and its articulation with civil society. There is a diversification of local and metropolitan responsibilities and activities, from the

TL;DR: In this paper, the transformation of urban social movements in these new social, economic and political environments is discussed, where the local issues urban movements engage with are becoming less parochial and more global.
Abstract: Urban social movements have traditionally been seen as being preoccupied with local issues, and as a result have been marginalized in the wider study of social movements. However, the increasing globalization of cities, the international flows of people, money and policy, have meant that the local issues urban movements engage with are becoming less parochial and more global. This collection deals with the transformation of urban movements in these new social, economic and political environments.

TL;DR: This book develops a fresh and challenging perspective on the city and argues that too much contemporary urban theory is based on nostalgia for a humane, face-to-face and bounded city.
Abstract: This book develops a fresh and challenging perspective on the city. Drawing on a wide and diverse range of material and texts, it argues that too much contemporary urban theory is based on nostalgia for a humane, face-to-face and bounded city. Amin and Thrift maintain that the traditional divide between the city and the rest of the world has been perforated through urban encroachment, the thickening of the links between the two, and urbanization as a way of Quick links
