  • An insight into governance and policy-making dimensions of the smart city concept from the CEE perspective [Elektronski vir]
    Pevcin, Primož
    The concept of smart city has become increasingly popular, both when addressed in scientific literature as well as from the perspective of contemporary urban policy-making. This concept has been ... popularized for the purpose of solving complex urban problems, for marketing purposes, and is also politically promoted for local electoral purposes. Although this concept does not have single definition and it has rather fuzzy nature, with somewhat blurred line with #alternative" concepts, it has become the prevailing city label, and neutral connotation might be of help. Based on the review of the literature, three main focuses and developmental areas of the smart city concept exist, that is technologies, human resources and governance, although the literature mostly, but still not exclusively, concentrates around the technological aspects. Moreover, the paper also presents the policy-making evidence on the utilization and proclamation of this concept in practice, adding also the CEE perspective. Namely, often the smartness is taken as a goal of policy-making, but it should be rather considered as a strategy. Policy-makers often neglect strategies or their focus is rather narrow, including also problematic implementation and omitted participation of relevant stakeholders. An issue is also transformation of the existing administrative structures and cultures. The level of economic development and associated financial power of cities strongly determines the volume and intensity of smart city efforts, and thus cities from the CEE region have a comparative disadvantage in this context. Furthermore, cities from CEE region have become involved in smart city initiatives much later than other cities, so this potentially further explains prevailing focus on the technology and technological solutions of smart city initiatives.
