About this Unit
This unit version will commence from Autumn 2010. Governance is a central but often overlooked issue in Urban Management. What is governance? What are the principles of good governance? How can they be extended to all parts of your organisation? How can you audit your own practices? This unit answers these questions, reviews governance practice in urban organisations across the world and provides participants with knowledge about some key governance tools. Participants also get an opportunity as part of the course to prepare a governance audit for an organisation they are familiar with and provide recommendations about how governance in that organization could be improved. The central objective of the course is to provide urban managers with a sound framework and set of tools with which to address governance issues in their own organisation and elsewhere.
