Solidarities between the state and local community in revitalization of old urban cores [WCAA Global Cultural Policies Task Force and IUAES Commission on Enterprise Anthropology]


Location: Poznań, Poland
Date: 30 Aug 11:00 - 12:45


Room 3.106

Renewal projects aimed at reconstructing old urban cores and revitalizing life in them are complex undertakings with multiple actors. In most cases, the state at different levels of administration (starting from federal to regional and municipal, down to local institutions) initiates such projects and fully or partially funds them. These projects are part of urban and spatial plans of different order and are implemented under varied policies and legal regulations, which impose certain rules of land use, zoning, construction, negotiation, relocation, business stimulation, social work, etc. At the same time, various non-state actors, especially business enterprises, non-governmental organizations, citizens’ and neighborhood associations and groups, as well as concerned individuals, take part in the process. This panel would like to invite researchers that will present and discuss various kinds of partnerships, or rather formal and informal solidarities between the state institutions and local communities. Our interest is to discuss how such solidarities can contribute to positive and negative outcomes of inner city renewal projects. Another words, we want to explore how ethnology, anthropology and related disciplines may be useful in making the future of redeveloped cities, showing how the state can stimulate or respond to initiatives of other actors engaged in the process. We are especially interested in solidarities that bring about vibrant open public space activities and business establishment activities that at the same time preserve the old urban traditions, but also serve as generators of good life and sustainable urban development.
