Local business associations and regional policies in the context of neo-liberalism



Local institutional capacity and decentralization of power
Erkan, Gökhan Hüseyin; Şengül, Hüseyin Tarık; Department of Urban Policy Planning and Local Governments (2006)
The aim of this thesis is to examine the relationship between the success of the decentralization schemes and the local capacity by concentrating on the case of Metropolitan Municipality of Diyarbakır. The Local Government Reform in Turkey was built on the argument that local authorities, compared to the central government, are better in providing services in a more efficient and more participatory manner. This thesis argues that such an argument is valid only in an environment where there is a strong local...
Local entrepreneurialism and local business associations
Bayırbağ, Mustafa Kemal (null; 2009-04-09)
This paper is an attempt to examine the dynamics that have shaped local entrepreneurialism in the context of capitalist state rescaling. It contends that it is not enough to conclude that urban/local governance is pro-business in nature. We need to investigate how these pro-business agendas and governance structures emerge. The empirical analysis is, thus, sharpened by concentrating on the institutional dynamics of the local bourgeoisie’s political mobilisation. The birth and evolution of local entrepreneur...
Local Dimensions of a Wider European Neighbourhood:Developing Political Community through Practices and Discourses of Cross-Border Co-operation (EUDIMENSIONS)
Ayata, Ayşe(2009-6-30)
With the concept generally known as "Wider Europe", the European Union has mapped out an ambitious vision of regional "Neighbourhood" that "goes beyond co-operation to involve a significant measure of integration". Furthermore, the EU sees this new quality of regional interaction and partnership as bringing "enormous gains to all involved in terms of increased stability, security and well being". EUDIMENSIONS seeks to understand the implications of these emerging geopolitical contexts for cross-border co...
Local administrations and disaster risk management in Turkey
Ulutürk, Gülcan; Balamir, Murat; Department of City and Regional Planning (2006)
Global policies in disaster management have radically changed since 1990s, shifting the previously entrenched emphasis on emergency management, towards new applications of risk management. A series of international declarations expressed the determination and principles to reduce risks at every level, which were followed by many national governments. The disaster management system in Turkey seems to tend towards this approach, not necessarily based on an awareness of the global trends, but due to the severe...
Local decision making and decision fusion in hierarchical levels
BELDEK, ULAŞ; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-07-01)
Hierarchical problem solving is preferred when the problem is overwhelmingly complicated. In such a case, the problem should better be analyzed in hierarchical levels. At each level, some temporary solutions are obtained; then a suitable decision fusion technique is used to merge the temporary solutions for the next level. The hierarchical framework proposed in this study depends on reutilization or elimination of previous level local agents that together perform the decisions due to a decision-fusion techn...
