Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter provides a detailed analysis of the relevant policy processes in France and Italy, which focuses on the urban level. It assesses the extent to which the actions of policymakers in Lyon, Milan, Paris, and Rome stand out as an autonomous force concerning the constraints of laws and institutional arrangements that are already in place. The analysis references several studies that emphasise the explanatory role of contextual environments and ‘political opportunities’ at the intersection of the national and the urban level of policymaking.

Keywords: policy processes; France; Italy; constraints; laws; institutional arrangements; contextual environments; political opportunities
