Public and Civic Attention to Neighborhood Revitalization in Chicago

September 12, 2008

3:00 PM - 4:45 PM


412 S. Peoria, Chicago, IL 60607

Event Description:

Patterns of governance in neighborhood policy have changed, with foundations playing a larger role than in the past. Today, neighborhood policy is decided in the 'civic sphere' as well as in the arena of ward politics. Initiatives in Chicago present the opportunity to explore the role of foundations, and also suggest some of the tensions and difficulties inherent in comprehensive neighborhood regeneration within the American intergovernmental system. This research is part of a cross-national project on 'Regenerating Urban Neighborhoods' in 18 cites and 11 countries in North America and Europe. John Betancur and Douglas Gills of Urban Planning and Policy are also part of the Chicago research team.

Karen Mossberger is an Associate Professor in the Department of Public Administration. Her research interests include local governance, urban policy, and digital inequality, and she is currently co-editing the Oxford Handbook of Urban Politics.
