As outlined by Brenner and Theodore (Spaces of Neoliberalism: Urban Restructuring in North America and Western Europe, 2012), an understanding of “actually existing” neoliberalism considers the contextual factors that shape neoliberal projects as they are produced within specific locations. So to comprehend urban governance in the neoliberal arena means reckoning with the many forms it takes in different contexts and spaces. In this panel, we aim to explore examples of varying types of urban governance as they “actually exist” in the world. Examples include urban governance through a variety of lenses, including as policy making and service delivery. Who is involved? What do the the specific forms of governance look like? How are they produced? What are the implications? Are there opportunities for alternatives?
