The potential to reframe regional policies and institutions in ways that improve governance and address disadvantage
In the US the need for improved regional governance is pressing and growing. Reforms are being initiated, and more powerful theoretical frameworks that served as foundations for earlier reform efforts are available. In combination, these developments suggest that reforming regional governance is necessary, that political energy is being expended to initiate such reforms, and that improved theoretical tools for guiding action may be sufficient to the challenge. Improved conceptualization of the strategies available is needed if reformers are to be more successful today than in the past. Examination of what is happening in California provides a concrete context in which these ideas can be further developed. -from Author
