European Cities and Global Competitiveness. Strategies for Improving Performance

Edited by Peter Karl Kresl and Daniele Ietri, Edward Elgar Publishers, 2012.
(GUCP conference #8, Naples, December 11-13, 2009)

The volume begins with an Introduction, followed by a set of three papers in Part Two examining European urban competitiveness from the standpoints of measurement and policy. Experience has shown that perhaps the most crucial element in competitiveness enhancement is good and effective governance. To that end, Part Three examines structural aspects of urban government, including polycentric regions, wide metropolitan cooperation, the role of social actors and territorial aggregation. Part Four treats issues of innovation from two perspectives and provides a case study from Eindhoven, while also covering social issues such as demographics, participation, social exclusion and mobility.

Economic Strategies for Mature Industrial Economies

Edited by Peter Karl Kresl, Edward Elgar Publishers, 2010.
(GUCP conference #7, Philadelphia, April 2-3, 2009)

The global economy has transformed during the last few decades. Though the changes have benefited some, many mature industrial economies have not been treated well by the changes they have seen and have been forced to adapt to dramatically altered circumstances. In this collection of original papers, economists and geographers from Asia, North America and Europe examine the policy initiatives that have succeeded in their countries.
