Leren van buitenlandse steden: Het doen van comparatief onderzoek

Erwin Heurkens, 17 December 2020, Master City Developer, Module 7

In order to draw lessons from foreign practices of urban planning and development one needs to comprehend the methodological issues related to international comparative studies and lesson-drawing. Institutional comparisons between cultures, systems and practices making use of institutional models assist in understanding and explaining context-specific habits, policies and instruments. A lesson-drawing method distinguishes the three levels of lesson-drawing (inspiration, learning and transplanting), and recognizes three levels of likelihood of transfer (depending on the similarities in systems and countries) emphasizing the importance of context. This presentation further discusses Anglo-Saxon institutions and urban development practices to underpin the methodological issues in international comparative studies.
