More Information
Written in a clear and concise style, this Modern Guide provides a timely overview and comparison of urban challenges and national urban policies in 13 European countries, addressing key issues such as housing, urban regeneration and climate change. A team of international contributors illustrate how gaps are emerging across Europe due to the significant shifts in urban programmes.

The book provides an in-depth analysis into how the European Union influences policies at a national level within its member states and how these are implemented in terms of scope and objectives. It explores how this results in fewer commonalities between countries and the gap between the rise of international urban agendas and variegated national urban policies, examining whether a more bespoke approach is better than the traditional ‘one size fits all’.

This insightful book will be an important read for researchers of urban studies and public policy as well as scholars with an interest in urban and regional sociology.

Critical Acclaim
‘This interesting volume highlights the importance of considering cities as political actors embedded in national urban policies. A much-needed perspective to understand the degrees of freedom cities have in different European countries and their implications.’
– Yuri Kazepov, University of Vienna, Austria

‘Zimmermann and Fedeli’s Modern Guide demonstrates how, despite international encouragement, the promise of bold, nationally-coordinated and intersectoral urban policies is still sadly unfulfilled. Each chapter provides an informative, up-to-date overview of the trajectories, instruments, goals and eventual impacts of national urban policy in 13 countries that will be useful for scholars and practitioners in Europe and beyond.’
– Hilary Silver, George Washington University, US
