City-Regional Policies paper given in a Seminar at Orkestra – Basque Institute of Competitiveness on 26th May 2014 in St. Sebastián, Basque Country (Spain)

On 26th May, Dr Igor Calzada will conduct a seminar at the Basque Institute of Competitiveness, Orkestra- University of Deusto, as an outcome of his postdoctoral project. The seminar is part of the sharegune series at Orkestra, as follows:
The City-Regional Policies sharegune seminar by Dr Calzada at the Basque Institute of Competitiveness, Orkestra- University of Deusto, addresses the city and regions strategic promotions and simply examines whether or not (and how) they consider any policies for this promotional purpose, which we called City-Regional Policies.
The sharegune seminar entitled “City-Regional Policies” attempts, by sharing the postdoctoral project that is being carried out by Dr Calzada and named “Benchmarking Future City-Regions, to proceed with City-Regional Policies analysis. In a broad context, in which the regional level increasingly emphazises economic, social and even political dynamics beyond Nation-States, the project aims to compare 8 diverse City-Regions by looking into their territorial development strategies/policies and their associated social innovation processes from the Action Research. Hence, an intensive and comparative field work research is being carried out gradually based on a Triangulation method that consists of: Direct Participation, Direct Observation and State-of-the-Art.
Nevertheless, this sharegune seminar will focus on the analysis of the City-Regional Policies of just 3 specific case studies: The Basque City-Region, Oresund and Manchester/Liverpool. An analytical framework designed by the author and called 5-System will be suggested for the analysis.
