can contribute to the end of these freedoms, spurring precisely the kind of neoliberal tendencies that are problematic. Since completing the fieldwork, I have worked between academia and more practice-based urban development, which has given me new per- spectives on operationalizing policy. Berlin’s municipal government has set unprecedented targets for the construction of new housing and has simultaneously adopted a new agenda around citizen participation. If the book has a ‘take away’ in this context, it is an appeal for dialogue between civil society

I have learnt from them to value the contribution of older people through their eyes. Also, I had the opportunity to learn about literature and how to organize a conference taking into account all the details and all the

In some instances the conditions de- manded by ›social licensors‹ may be tougher than those imposed by regulation, resulting in ›beyond compliance‹ corporate environmental measures even in circumstances where these are unlikely to be profitable.« Eine erste auffallende Ähnlichkeit mit den neueren Konzepten, wie sie insbeson- dere bei Teubner zu finden sind, betrifft die Wahl

connectivity, flow, communication, participation, transparency, authenticity, and flexibility. After the new media revolution, organizing appears explicitly as networking. Networks do not respect the traditional division of society into domains, functional subsystems, areas, etc. Networking moves easily between business, politics, civil society, education, healthcare, and other areas of social activity and creates new forms of association, cooperation, and cooperative action in which organizations in all areas participate. We refer to this new commons in which

programs are de- signed to meet the expectations, interests and needs of students in dif- ferent phases of their lives and careers. Education in essence means opening up new perspectives and seek- ing to complement one’s own expertise through interaction with others —an essential precondition for participating in today’s pluralistic and heterogeneous society. 84 | SASCHA SPOUN AND CHRISTIAN KÖLZER Responsibility Leuphana University is committed in many ways to taking on respon- sibility for civil society in the 21st century. Some aspects of its research and

There are three different ap- proaches: qualitative analysis of concepts and phenomena considered to be con- stitutive of globalisation, such as social movements, networks, civil society with- in a framework of transcultural sociology, thereby avoiding dualisms of blocks, cultures etc.; globalisation studied through its constitutional element of interlink- ing

shaped by market-oriented actors, who then conceptualize the city as a kaleidoscope of neighborhoods with ever distinct (commodified) cultural identities and arbi- trary contexts – depending on the respective target audience. Speaking of life- style diversity through migration though, a broader, yet less powerful variety of state and civil society actors points to Vienna’s social responsibility as Eu- ropean metropolis towards migrants and integrative measures. Thus, the con- textualizations underline the cleavage in Vienna’s strategic development be- tween pro

200 organizations served as HIGHLY MOTIVATED | 81 the frame of reference (N=199). However, we do not claim to have found all or- ganizations, due to both necessarily limited time and our focus on organizations committed to supporting the Afghan civil society. Considering these limitations, a cautious estimate of the total number of organizations would be 250 to 300. Apart from NGOs, further institutions were also invited to take part in the study: foundations, academic societies running exchange programs for both teachers and students as part of

the THE CONTESTED POLITICS OF PLANNING | 59 city (Harvey, 1989; Rhodes, 1996). Two major arguments explain why state ac- tors are increasingly drawn to applying governance approaches in planning. First, politics and planning face increasing actor multiplicity within state, market, and civil society, who all have a specific stake in planning (McGuigan, 2001). Overall, urban politics is today permeated by a broad and ever changing constellation of actors, who all pursue varying interests based on the value plu- ralism characteristic of urban societies (Hajer
