Reformulierung städtischer Politikformen am Beispiel Berlins
The focus of this article are the shifts in the political forms and expressions of urban politics due to a neoliberal restructuring. It is argued that these trends consist in a transition from a distribution-oriented to an entrepreneurial, globally oriented city. This is connected to a reformulation of city images and a discourse about deregulation, privatization and market-led policies. Even the atypical case of Berlin can serve as an example of this transition.
