The main objective of the Winter School is to stimulate the debate on the process of production of public policies in cities. To a large extent, urban public policies are the result of cooperative relations, confrontation and participation between different types of public, private and social actors. The management of this type of relationships for the common good is one of the major challenges of urban governance. In this Winter School, we will contrast the experience of Barcelona with other cities in Spain and around the world to discuss the opportunities and challenges involved in public-private and public-community relations in the production process of urban policies.
The course will take place over 3 days, each one divided into two sessions (morning and afternoon) organised around a specific topic:
Three types of activities will be combined throughout the sessions:
This activity is addressed to the following groups: undergraduate and graduate students; academics interested in urban studies; local and regional government officials and politicians; social and neighbourhood activists; members of Third Sector organisations. The aim is that this event represents an opportunity for people from different territories to meet up an exchange their different experiences: Barcelona and cities in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona and the rest of Catalonia; cities from Spain; cities from different parts of the world, especially Europe and Latin America. Most of the activities will be held in Spanish, although there will also be some sessions in English with simultaneous translation.
