Comparing Metropolitan Governance in Transatlantic Perspective: Toronto, Montreal, Paris and Frankfurt

Prof. Roger Keil, Prof. Stefan Kipfer, Prof. Julie-Anne Boudreau (Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique), and Prof. Pierre Hamel (Universite de Montreal)

Urban regions have been confronted with new challenges due to globalization and neoliberalization as they are often perceived as the centres of the world economy. We propose a comparative investigation of the globally-induced transformation of metropolitan governance systems in two of Canada’s most important city-regions (Toronto and Montreal) and two metropolitan regions in Western Europe (Paris and Frankfurt). The research will consist of qualitative questionnaires, open-ended interviews, newspaper content analysis, two research workshops and document study.

The primary objective of the research is to broaden and deepen our understanding of regional governance through an innovative comparative project: 1. The crossing of several boundaries of political cultures (Ontario/Quebec; France; Germany); 2; the engagement with Anglo-American, French and German literatures on the subject of regional governance and the investigation of respective case studies; 3. The broadening of the comparative angle from issues of economic competitiveness and social cohesion to four specific, topical and relevant fields of policy, politics and governance in metropolitan regions; 4. The expansion of comparative work on municipal governance to regional governance.

The focus of this collaborative, international, comparative research project, is the urban region with its growing web of metropolitan governance. The emergence of collective action at the metropolitan level in Canada and Europe will be examined through infrastructure, public health, green space, and human security.

The results of the research will be disseminated through topical articles in academic journals. The European workshop with the collaborators will result in a state of the art assessment of comparative governance research in the form of an edited book. The four co-applicants will synthesize their findings in a monograph. Conference presentations at scholarly meetings will succinctly summarize the research project’s findings.

The following is a list of presentations and publications that are related to the project or have resulted from this research:
