Entrepreneurial urbanism, state restructuring and civilizing ‘New’ East Manchester
Abstract:This paper draws on the ‘entrepreneurial turn’ literatures to examine the current redevelopment of East Manchester. It makes three contributions to our existing empirical and theoretical understanding of what is termed here ‘entrepreneurial urbanism’. First, attention is drawn to the spatially selective nature of entrepreneurial urbanism within cities; second, it argues that entrepreneurial urbanism actually demands a qualitative shift in the state's role in urban redevelopment and third, using the example of East Manchester, these two theoretical issues are explored empirically.
