关于我

有时我喜欢安静,有时我喜欢热闹。 有时我喜欢加入人群,有时我喜欢远离他们,独自呆着。 冬天我渴望阳光,夏天我盼望下雪。 春去秋来,不变的是我的学术信仰、志向和兴趣。一直思考着:什么是语用?为什么要研究语用?怎样研究语用?研究语用需要具备哪些素质?谁在研究语用?语用研究的走势如何?存在哪些问题?等等。 我深信“宁静”方可“致远”的道理,努力走向这种境界。 求学、求真的路上,深深领悟到过程决定结果,过程大于结果,远远大于结果。

Metaphors for Metropolitan Governance: Insights from the E.U., Iroquois Confederacy, NFL, University of California System, GM and the Internet

Kathryn A. Foster, Director, University at Buffalo Regional Institute, State University of New York, February 22, 2007

International Speakers Forum - 2007 Series

Addressing contemporary challenges of metropolitan regions—countering urban sprawl, narrowing regional disparities and competing in a global economy—involves multiple units of government. Yet it is often quite difficult for a region’s autonomous local units to cede authority and cooperate to pursue common interests. But if metropolitan governance systems are simply one species in a kingdom of governance systems, we can look to other private, public, tribal and academic governance systems for insights on how they achieve efficiencies, address equity and sustain economic growth.

Kathryn Foster mines the experience of six “metaphor” governance systems—the National Football League, the University of California system, General Motors, the European Union, the Iroquois Confederacy and the Internet—to gain insights on how systems of many autonomous members structure themselves and operate to achieve effective governance.

Kathryn A. Foster is Director of the University at Buffalo Regional Institute, The State University of New York, where she is also Associate Professor and former chair in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning. Dr. Foster is the author of The Political Economy of Special-Purpose Government (Georgetown University Press, 1997), Regionalism on Purpose (Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, 2001), and articles on regions and governance in such journals as Political Geography, Urban Affairs Review, and the Journal of Urban Affairs. She is a fellow in the World Academy of Arts and Science and currently is completing a book on governance systems. She earned her B.A. in Geography at Johns Hopkins University, her M.A. in City Planning at U.C. Berkeley and her Ph.D. in public and international affairs from Princeton University.
