Smart City-Regional Governance


On 8-9 October, I attended a workshop hosted by the Brussels Centre for Urban Studies at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel on ‘Smart City-Regional Governance: ‘Smartness’ in Reconciling Internationality, Competitiveness and Cohesion?‘. The workshop was organised by Tassilo Hershell and Bas van Heur and included a wide-ranging discussion on the implications of smart city agendas. With my co-authors James Evans (University of Manchester), Kes McCormick (University of Lund) and Gregory Trencher (Clark University), I presented ideas about ‘Smartness and the Disintegration of the City’.
