The Mediterranean Institute organized on 12 November 2012 in collaboration with the Development Council of Marseille Provence Métropole a conference on:
Policy and urban governance to the test of financial crisis
Which impact of the crisis on urban systems in the Mediterranean area?
The congress aimed to debate the impact of the economic and financial crisis on urban policies and governance model of Mediterranean cities. To discuss these issues and intend to bring solutions to the challenges brought by the crisis, cities of the Northern shore of the Mediterranean area, such as Rome, Barcelona or Ljubljana, as well as other European cities like Amsterdam, were represented to share their experiences and good practices in urban or metropolitan governance. The Congress was complemented by a knowledge fair where regional good practices in polycentrism will be presented.
