I’m excited to announce that my colleague Jacqueline Taylor and I will be conducting a pilot study about strategies to reactivate vacant buildings in the US and Europe funded by a mini-grant from the German Marshall Fund of the United States!
Does describing vacant buildings as “blight” doom them to demolition? In my newest post, I examine the consequences of framing and consensus in urban policy through the example of the term “blight.”
What do Bremen and Bologna have in common? They both used administrative restructuring to address their citizens’ needs and desires and boost civil society’s involvement in urban development – with great results! In this post, I explore administrative restructuring’s potentials for growth in peripheral and rural areas.
