Call for Papers
The French and British Planning Study Group organizes the seminar "Exploring urban models and policy transfer: the legacy of European Green Capitals".It will be organised by the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Nantes on October 24-25 2016. Nantes has been chosen as the location for the Autumn 2016 seminar as it is a very active city on the European urban scene; the mayor of Nantes for example, currently chairs Eurocities. In the French context, Nantes is often seen by other cities and even by the State as a ‘model’ regarding public transport, brownfield reuse, social mixity, or urban regeneration through arts and culture (Devisme, 2009; Roy and Nicolas, 2015).
In this context, the programme committee wishes to analyze the circulation of urban policy models and “best practices”.
This theme was already explored in the case of Nantes and other cities and it will be the central topic of a series of workshops organised by Laurent Devisme and Renaud Epstein at the Maison des Sciences de l’Homme Ange Guépin in 2016 and 2017. In a recent paper, Béal, Epstein and Pinson (2015) argue that the increasing mobility of practices, knowledge and initiatives in urban policies cannot be explained only by the local and transnational dynamics of urban policy-making. In the case of France, they point at the restructuring of the State, in which the State strengthens its capacity to steer at a distance urban policies, while accompanying the rise in power of ‘métropoles’. Can we witness a similar process in Great Britain? What does it imply for national and local efforts to adapt the urban systems to climate change?The group welcomes any suggestions for contributions on these issues.
Authors are invited to submit proposals (in French or English) dealing with these questions until September 1, 2016.
This seminar is supported by AAU CRENAU, MSH Ange Guépin Nantes, APERAU and AESOP
