Welcome to Foresight For Development

New Cities Summit 2012 - Governing the Metropolis

What are the challenges of crafting better decision-making processes for constantly evolving cities? Are existing methods of governance adapted to the 21st century? What are the main areas where improvements are needed? What case studies of city regulation can be drawn upon to rethink the way cities are governed? How will governance be shared between politicians, technocrats, citizens and other stakeholders in tomorrow's cities? What is the impact of technology in city governance? What lies behind the term 'smart regulation'? Has the city, in fact, replaced the state?
