Governing Mobile Societies

Patrick Le Galès

In his lecture series, Patrick Le Galès contributes to the research agenda on governance that has been pioneered and developed at the MPIfG. He looks at three different dimensions in the governance of mobile societies. In his first lecture he discusses the question of who is being governed, i.e. what happens to European middle classes when they become more transnational and how the European urban bourgeoisies combine exit and voice. In the second lecture he addresses the question of how European societies are being governed and uses policy-instrument data to analyze policy change and modes of governance. His third and final lecture in the series examines what is and isn’t being governed and uses the example of the metropolis to think about the limits of governance, the dark side of governance, and the discontinuities of governance.
