In an era of increasing Regional Competitiveness and global concerns about energy security, planners emerge as key agents for risk negotiation and mediation between the public and the private sectors. This dissertation focuses on the relationship between planning, regional development, global competitiveness and risk. The lack of systematic links between planning, regional competitiveness and risk, calls for further inquiry into the role of risk for planning in an era of globalization
The main argument states that regional development and competitiveness is affected by traded and un-traded risks between the public and private sectors. Regional competitiveness and development options rest on improving, risk carrying capacity in each sector
A theoretical inquiry challenges traditional conceptual limitations of risk in the public domain, and expands the theoretical basis for better understanding and engaging risk in planning. An insightful and documented treatment of empirical case studies of large infrastructure projects that affect regional development, such as cross-border pipelines; illustrate the challenges and opportunities for regional development inherent in risks
This dissertation offers new theoretical and methodological tools for analyzing risk from a planning perspective, and suggests a new role for planners as managers and facilitators of risk decisions in regional development
