Titolo: Territorial Boundaries as Limits: A Foucauldian Analysis of the Agglomeration of Municipalities
Data di pubblicazione: 2012
Abstract: Public management theories have focused scholars' attention on agglomeration processes between public administrations. Such processes are relevant at a local level to increase efficiency and effectiveness in the provision of public services. Scholars and practitioners have pointed out economies of scale and efficiency in the production of public services as the most important incentives for adopting agglomeration policies. All kinds of related discourse, such as that relating to economics for example, need to be coordinated in order to change the behaviour of citizens and make the agglomeration process acceptable. The present article adopts a Foucauldian approach in highlighting an additional variable/discourse in addition to all the others used to foster agglomeration processes: the identity and culture of the communities involved in this kind of process.
