Divided Cities : Governing Diversity Hardback
Edited by Annika Bjorkdahl, Lisa Strombom
Combining peace and conflict studies with public administration research, Divided Cities critically investigates the roles of public administration and civil servants in resolving issues that are potentially conflictual in divided societies.
Zooming in on nine cities with very different legacies and democratic development-Copenhagen, Malmoe, Toronto, Belfast, Mostar, Cape Town, Mitrovica, Nicosia, and Jerusalem-the contributors analyze the tools, strategies, and understandings of conflict resolution that are available in different stages between conflict and stability.
Exploring how contested issues have been addressed, by whom, and to what effect, this collection of essays examines how public institutions and citizens have interacted to agree on the best course of action for progress in their respective cities.
