Urban Governance

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Klassiker und Theorierichtungen, Note: 1,3, Technische Universität Berlin (Institut für Stadt- und Regionalplanung), Veranstaltung: Theorie der Stadt- und Regionalplanung, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Vor dem Hintergrund des aktuellen Zustands der deutschen Kommunen mit ihren massiven wirtschaftlichen und finanziellen Problemen gewinnen die Debatten zu Methoden, Möglichkeiten und Chancen der Verwaltungsreform viel an Bedeutung. Diese Arbeit möchte einen kleinen Teil dieser Diskussion im Bereich der (urban) governance nachvollziehen, also die Bedeutung des Begriffs genau definieren, die Entstehung der Governance-Debatte nachzeichnen und ihre Ausprägungen auf kommunaler Ebene darstellen – sowohl theoretisch anhand der Systematik von Jon Pierre der „models of urban governance“ wie auch praktisch am Beispiel der HafenCity in Hamburg. Etymologischer Ursprung und Definition Das englische Wort governance lässt sich auf lateinische Ursprünge zurückführen, gubernare heißt in seiner Grundbedeutung lenken / steuern und stammt aus der Seefahrt. Im Laufe der Zeit wurde gubernare auch abstrakter gefasst und taucht schließlich in Schriften über Recht und Staatsverfassung unter anderem von Caesar, Cicero und Seneca als regieren / lenken / leiten auf. Der terminus technicus rem publicam gubernare wurde im klassischen Latein als Bezeichnung von Personen in leitenden Staatsämtern verwendet, aber auch in lateinischen Sprichwörtern findet sich gubernare (z.B. bei Livius: gubernare e terra, aus sicherem Orte andere in Gefahr belehren wollen). Das französische Wort gouvernance, seit dem 13. Jahrhundert Bestandteil der Sprache, bezeichnete zunächst nur die Form des Regierens. Abgeleitet von dem Wort gouvernail (Steuerrad, in der Schifffahrt) lassen sich auch Verbindungen zum deutschen „steuern“ herstellen. Um Regierung(shandeln) zu beschreiben war allerdings der Begriff méthodes de gouvernment (Methoden des Regierens) gebräuchlicher. Im Zuge der soziologischen und politikwissenschaftlichen Diskussionen der 1970/80er Jahre wurde der Terminus governance, übersetzt mit dem französischen gouvernance, wieder eingeführt, dementsprechend wird der Begriff in der französischen Sprache analog zu der Bedeutung des englischen governance1 definiert, so z.B. bei Marcou u.a.: "La gouvernance gilt für die neuen interaktiven Formen der Steuerung, in denen private Akteure, verschiedene öffentliche Organisationen, Bürgergemeinschaften oder andere Arten von Akteuren an der Verarbeitung der Politik teilnehmen." (Marcou, Rangeon, Thiebault 1997, zitiert nach Ferry 2003: 77) [...]

Der Klassiker zu Migration und Arbeit in Europa - so aktuell wie nie. Jetzt neu auflegt im FISCHER Taschenbuch! ›Der siebte Mensch‹ untersucht die Situation der Migranten und Wanderarbeiter – in Text und Bild, mit Geschichten und Erzählungen. Es war das erste Buch, das John Berger gemeinsam mit Jean Mohr ganz den Erfahrungen und Folgen der Migration widmete – und es ist wie ›Sehen‹ längst ein Klassiker der Moderne. Die Neuausgabe erscheint mit einem aktuellen Vorwort von John Berger. John Berger, der große europäische Erzähler und Essayist, feiert im November 2016 seinen 90. Geburtstag. Seine Essays zu Kunst und Fotografie sind aus der Ästhetik des 20. Jahrhunderts nicht mehr wegzudenken. Meisterhaft finden seine Erzählungen und Romane eine sinnliche Antwort auf die Frage, wie wir heute leben. »Es gibt niemals genug von John Berger!« Tilda Swinton

«Das beste Sachbuch des Jahres.» TIME Die Entdeckung Amerikas war für das Leben auf unserem Planeten das folgenreichste Ereignis seit dem Aussterben der Dinosaurier. Denn: Millionen Jahre waren die Hemisphären weitgehend voneinander isoliert gewesen. Mit Kolumbus traten sie in einen Austausch. Menschen und Pflanzen, Tiere und Krankheiten gelangten per Schiff in neue Lebensräume und schufen eine Welt, in der nichts blieb, wie es einmal gewesen war. Das hatte auch gravierende politische Konsequenzen: Der «kolumbische Austausch» trug mehr als alles andere dazu bei, dass Europa zur Weltmacht aufstieg und China verdrängte. Charles C. Mann zeichnet ein spannendes Panorama dieser Vorgänge, das Kontinente und Jahrhunderte umfasst. Ein großartiges Lesevergnügen für alle Wissensdurstigen! «Herausragend.» The New York Times «Ein faszinierendes und vielschichtiges Buch, das auf vorbildliche Weise sprechende Fakten mit gutem Geschichtenerzählen vereint.» The Washington Post
