In this paper, we discuss the relevance of mobilized policy models for urban restructuring processes. The purpose of analyzing a Business Improvement District (BID) and a public-private partnership (PPP) in Frankfurt (Main) is to examine the importance of discursive embedding, practices of contextualization and configurations of power for the adaptation and transformation of those policy models. We consider the analysis of policy mobilities as crucial for the understanding of variegated forms of ,,actually existing neoliberalism“ (Brenner/Theodore 2002) and logics of urban governing.

In dem Beitrag betrachten wir am Beispiel eines Business Improvement Districts (BID) und eines Public Private Partnerships (PPP) in Frankfurt am Main, welche Bedeutung Aneignungen global verfügbarer Politikmodelle für urbane Neuordnungsprozesse haben. Dabei diskutieren wir die Rolle diskursiver Einbettungen, Kontextualisierungspraktiken und Machtkonstellationen als zentrale Momente für die Adaption sowie Transformation mobilisierter Politiken. Im Zentrum steht vor dem Hintergrund der Debatte um policy mobilities die Auseinandersetzung mit unterschiedlichen Ausprägungen eines ,,actually existing neoliberalism“ (Brenner und Theodore 2002) und seines Verhältnisses zu anderen Logiken städtischen Regierens.
