Authoritative governance : policy-making in the age of mediatization by Maarten A Hajer( Book )

24 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the publisher. The role of the media has become a central part of politics and policy in the twenty-first century. That dominance has led many to suggest a trend of 'dumbing down': the privileging of style over content. In this provocative new book, Maarten Hajer takes issue with the 'dumbing down' thesis both on theoretical and empirical grounds. He aims to show how authoritative governance remains possible in crisis-driven circumstances and a highly 'mediatized' world
In search of new public domain : analysis and strategy by Maarten A Hajer( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Search of New Public Domain is a report of a quest to establish the preconditions for the design of new public spaces. On the basis of an analysis of the cultural geography of the network city, the authors develop a new perspective of cultural exchange as a typical urban quality. They are critical of the laments about the decline of the city and public space, as much as of a naive faith in architecture and urbanism as saving graces. A critical investigation of the new collective spaces that are popping up across the whole of the urban field offers an insight into the factors that facilitate the development of new public domain. Through their clarification of the theoretical background and analysis of topical issues such as public safety and social segregation, the authors offer insights and instruments for policy-makers and designers who are confronted with the new task of the design of public domain in the network city."--Jacket

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Smart about cities : visualising the challenge for 21st century urbanism : "we need a globally networked urbanism" by International architecture biennale( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Current discussions on urban planning regularly invoke the concept of the smart city-a city based on innovative urban planning, which itself is based on "smart" technologies that are supposed to make cities safer, cleaner and more efficient. But is this actually improving cities? Smart about Cities argues for "smart urban planning" instead of an uncritical embrace of the smart city. Smart urban planning tackles what twentieth-century urban planning forgot-the metabolism of cities, the incoming and outgoing flows that connect urban life with the natural world. Key questions are visualized in 50 infographics: what do cities live on? How much water, food and construction material do they use? What amount of those materials do they dispose of? This book makes an appeal for "global network urban planning" in which technology is not a panacea but is instead anchored in social innovation
Sterke verhalen : hoe Nederland de planologie opnieuw uitvindt by Maarten A Hajer( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in Dutch and English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The planning practices of tomorrow are all about creating widely endorsed spatial visions. These visions develop out of interaction between citizens, experts, and policymakers, and they connect research findings with local wishes and circumstances. More than ever, the crucial level will be the region. Strong Stories is the third volume in the Design and Politics series on the interplay of planning, design, and politics, an initiative of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment. The authors of this volume, Maarten Hajer, Jantine Grijzen, and Susan van 't Klooster, reimagine planning as a discipline based on strong stories. This book takes a penetrating look at the state of play in regional planning, the role of designers, the outsourcing of planning projects, and effective information-gathering. It offers policymakers, consultants, researchers, and designers a new perspective on tomorrow's planning practices, supported by specific findings from case studies and reflections by leading commentators Ed Dammers, Roel During, John Forester, Zef Hemel, Jannemarie de Jonge, Marianne Kuijpers-Linde, David Laws, Hans Mommaas, Maarten Poorter, Jan van Tatenhove and Nanke Verloo
Der Unscharfe Ort der Politik : empirische Fallstudien zur Theorie der reflexiven Modernisierung by Ulrich Beck( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in German and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der verbreiteten Rede von der "Politikverdrossenheit" oder dem "Ende der Politik" setzt dieser Band die These entgegen, daß sich das Verständnis und der Ort von Politik verändert haben. Die Grundlagen des gesellschaftlichen Handelns und Zusammenlebens sind in Bewegung geraten. ("reflexive Modernisierung"), die Gesellschaft hat sich energischer von Regeln befreit, als die Politik wahrhaben wollte: Eine Gesellschaft erfindet sich ihre Politik. Dieser Prozeß des Wie und Wo soll in diesem Band empirisch aufgezeigt werden. Dazu bedarf es einer Forschung, die nicht nur Phänomene bestimmt, sondern auch eine angemessene Sprache für die neuen Phänomene entwickelt. Erst dann ist auch eine theoretische Neubestimmung des Politikbegriffs möglich

Food systems and natural resources by Henk Westhoek( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Global food systems have radically changed over the last 50 years. Food production has more than doubled, diets have become more varied (and often more energy-intense) satisfying people's preferences in terms of form, taste and quality, and numerous local, national and multi-national food-related enterprises have emerged providing livelihoods for millions. Nonetheless, over 800 million people are still hungry (70% of whom live in rural areas in developing countries), about two billion suffer from poor nutrition, and over two billion are overweight or obese. The resource use implications and environmental impacts of these food systems are significant. In general, of all economic activities, the food sector has by far the largest impact on natural resource use as well as on the environment. An estimated 60% of global terrestrial biodiversity loss is related to food production; food systems account for around 24% of the global greenhouse gas emissions and an estimated 33% of soils are moderately to highly degraded due to erosion, nutrient depletion, acidification, salinization, compaction and chemical pollution. The Food Systems working group of the International Resource Panel has prepared a comprehensive scientific assessment of the current status and dynamics of natural resource use in food systems and their environmental impacts. The IRP identifies opportunities for Resource Smart Food Systems responding to policy-relevant questions like what do sustainable food systems look like from a natural resource perspective? How can resource efficiency improvements be made to enhance food security? How to steer transition towards sustainable food systems? The report looks at food as a crucial connection point (a 'node') where various societal issues coincide, such as human dependence on natural resources, the environment, health and wellbeing. Rather than looking separately at resources such as land, water and minerals, the IRP has chosen a systems approach. The report looks at all the resources needed for the primary production of food, as well as for other food system activities (e.g. processing, distribution) considering not only the set of activities, but also the range of actors engaged in them and the outcomes in terms of food security, livelihoods and human health
