Place-based Public Policy: Towards a New Urban and Community Agenda for Canada. Neil Bradford. Research Report F|51. March 2005. 76 pp.

In Place-based Public Policy: Towards a New Urban and Community Agenda for Canada, Bradford argues that the increasingly complex challenges that govern the quality of life in our cities cannot be solved by one or two players acting on their own. Instead, Canada's future competitiveness depends on its ability to set aside traditional, segmented and aspatial approaches and develop a "place-based public policy" rooted in "collaborative, multilevel governance".
