In the Wake of a Local Government Initiative: KuÃ§ukÃ§ekmece: AYAZMA-TEPEÃœSTÃœ Urban Regeneration Project is the first and so far only publication to elaborate on all the stages of one of the many "Urban Regeneration" projects being implemented in Turkey, especially in recent years. In this publication the authors detail the operation and management processes of the municipality where the initiative is taking place, in addition to the actors involved and the duties they have taken over. The book not only examines the "KuÃ§ukcekmece Ayazma-Tepeustu Urban Regeneration" project, but it also gives a clear account of the positive and negative aspects of the process.To date, especially in the western world, a large number of scientifically significant books have been released on some such initiatives (mainly in the UK), yet there has been no widely disseminated volume on Turkey's approach and project building methodologies. Unlike in the Western world, in Turkey, urban regeneration is a means to overcome the challenges created by the growth of unauthorized housing. In the case of Turkey this publication will serve as a step in developing more publications, as well as present the reader with an example for comparison.The authors prepared the book in order to bring into public view the "KuÃ§ukcekmece Ayazma-Tepeustu Urban Regeneration Project" and all its associated dynamics. The project has been under way since 2004 and is the first project in Turkey with well adjusted social projects implemented in parallel. The Ayazma-Tepeustu region is historically a location of unplanned/illegal settlements,. Unlike a standard project, this initiative was embarked on with a genuine academic enthusiasm and an investigative perspective, making it valuable to share publicly all phases, timelines and current achievements.
This text evaluates the validity of a key proposition of public choice theory: that competition is associated with superior performance by governmental organizations. Three forms of competition in local government are identified: competition between local authorities; competition between councils and private contractors; and competition between parties for political power. The extent and consequences of competition are assessed in both the UK and USA. The analysis is used to draw conclusions on the effects of competition and the validity of public choice theory.
