Spatial Planning Systems and Practices in Europe A Comparative Perspective on Continuity and Changes

Anna Geppert (ENeC) a participé à la rédaction de "Spatial Planning Systems and Practices in Europe. A Comparative Perspective on Continuity and Changes" (Routledge, 2014), ouvrage dirigé par Mario Reimer, Panagiotis Getimis et Hans Blotevogel.

Ideal for students and practitioners working in spatial planning, the Europeanization of planning agendas and regional policy in general Spatial Planning Systems and Practices in Europe develops a systematic methodological framework to analyze changes in planning systems throughout Europe. The main aim of the book is to delineate the coexistence of continuity and change and of convergence and divergence with regard to planning practices across Europe.

Based on the work of experts on spatial planning from twelve European countries the authors underline the specific and context-dependent variety and disparateness of planning transformation, focusing on

  • the main objectives of the changes,
  • the driving forces behind them and the main phases and turning points,
  • the main agenda setting actors, and
  • the different planning modes and tools reflected in the different "policy and planning styles".

Along with a methodological framework the book includes twelve country case studies and the comparative conclusions covering a variety of planning systems of EU member states. According to the four "ideal types" of planning systems identified in the EU Compendium, at least two countries have been selected from each of the four different planning traditions :

  • regional-economic (France, Germany),
  • Urbanism (Greece, Italy),
  • comprehensive/integrated (Denmark ,Finland, Netherlands, Germany),
  • "land use planning" (UK, Czech Republic, Belgium/Flanders), along with two additional case studies focusing on the recent developments in eastern European countries by looking at Poland and in southern Europe looking at Turkey.

L’ouvrage, issu d’un projet de recherche porté par l’Akademie für Raumforschung und Landesplanung (ARL), examine l’évolution récente des systèmes de planification en Europe et ses raisons : impact de la législation et des politiques matérielles de l’Union européenne, effets de la concurrence territoriale internationale, renforcés par la crise de 2008.

Le chapitre sur la France rédigé par Anna Geppert montre que l’hexagone n’a pas fini d’intégrer dans les pratiques les effets des décentralisations. Le renouveau du système français de planification se heurte aux limites d’une réforme territoriale toujours inachevée.
