Urban Development and Policies

Ioannis Chorianopoulos - Postgraduate - (A-)
Department of Geography, Aegean University

The geographical location of cities is currently understood as one of a multitude of factors influencing urban growth prospects. In the framework of this course, ‘global cities’ and secondary urban networks are approached as key relational and influential nodes. The role and traits of urban governance and planning in structuring urban fortunes is examined. Special emphasis is placed on EU urban policies, and on the influence they exert on planning interventions in Greek cites. In the seminars’ part, students are asked to choose, develop and present in the classroom a concrete urban intervention case, illustrative of the quest to growth and competitiveness. The presentation of these tangible urban policy examples intents to involve students in a lively dialogue, engaging them actively in the course. Upon completion of the course, students will be adequately familiar with the traits of new urban development policies, also handling confidently and critically the texts/reports that accompany them.
