TCR Module on ‘European urban policies and territorial governing cultures and structures’ seminar series
This module elaborates the European Institutions, their frameworks and programmes towards cities and regions. This includes the main documents defining European urban policies such as European Urban Agenda, Leipzig Charta and Toledo Declaration as well as global official reports such as the UN Habitat’s Sustainable Development Goals and New Urban Agenda. Additionally, the governing cultures across Europe and the transformation of the models of urban governance are examined and evaluated. Finally, the module gives an overall view of the tools and instruments of urban governance and urban development across Europe.
The main objective of the module is to give students deeper insights into the European policies towards cities and regions, and the ways they respond to global change and fit into the global urban agenda. In this module, the students learn the political aspect of design and planning and recognize and evaluate the territorial governing models and their relations to urban and regional transformation.
