Vratislav Havlík on tensions between cities and regions
9.10.2018/ Vratislav Havlík marked a publication succes by publishing an article titled "Competing discourses of territorial development: tensions between cities and regions as a result of the new regionalism" in the prestigious European Planning Studies. The journal is listed in the first quartile of pertinent journals indexed in the SCOPUS database (and in the second quartile in the Web of Science).
The article deals with the competition between metropolitan areas and old regions as one of the most visible results of the ‘new regionalism’ policy in the EU. The aim of this paper is to explain the newly emerged tensions between the regions and the cities within the EU in the context of the ‘new regionalism’. Three variables have been identified as major factors causing the tensions: insufficient administrative capacity, political challenges and lack of shared understanding of priorities of regional development among sub-state actors.
The article is available on the Taylor & Francis publishing house website.
