Abstract

A conspicuously 'entrepreneurial' turn in urban
governance has heightened the significance of cities
as strategic sites upon and through which to foster
renewed economic growth and prosperity while
simultaneously combating entrenched social
problems. If the pioneering entrepreneurial cities in
this process (or, more precisely, their governments
and agencies) have undoubtedly been located in the
United States (Harvey, 1989;Jonas and Wilson,
1999), there is also little doubt that urban growth
has become a key focal point of political programmes
and spatial policy in many European countries
(OECD, 2000; 2003; Moulaert et al., 2001; Brenner,
2003).
