This chapter focuses on the effects of ‘downscaling’ for governance and local policy interventions, which proposes the enhancement of spaces of inclusion in cities. It begins by examining the discourse downscaling within the context of the emergence of an ‘entrepreneurial’ city. It then discusses the notion of urban politics and the ways in which competing interpretations relate to different conceptualisations of power. The concept and practice of ‘participation’ in governance is also examined. The chapter ends by asking whether the limits of participation in urban regeneration have already been reached.

Keywords:   downscaling, governance, policy interventions, entrepreneurial city, urban politics, power, urban regeneration
