This module addresses the complexities of regeneration policy in the context of multi-level governance. Running through the module is the systemic tension between a number of competing, equally important public policy goals, namely subsidiarity (devolved democracy) and solidarity (social equality); competition and collaboration and managerialism and marketisation.
This module comprises a series of lectures, covering forms of governance at different spatial scales, different models of governance, fiscal federalism and the history, theory and practice of neighbourhood governance approaches. Lectures provide an opportunity for questions and open discussion. In addition, seminars will enable students to undertake guided reading and engage in discussion, drawing out international similarities and differences in governance and how these affect approaches at sub-national levels.
The seminars and lecture discussions offer students the opportunity to develop communication and presentation skills.

The module considers processes of policy development at different spatial scales from the supra-national to neighbourhood level and the role of different actors/ organisations/groups in these processes. It explores the development of area-based regeneration policy and the multi-level governance context in which policy and practice operate.
