Prof. Hasson analyzes the new urban order in Israel characterized by urban coalitions between the municipal government and non-elected partners
Prof. Hasson analyses the new urban coalitions formed over the last three decades. These coalitions expand governance activity to new partners in the business sector, NGOs, and neighborhood representatives. The coalition enables the new partners to achieve their goals using municipal resources and affords the local authority legitimacy and increased effectiveness.
Prof. Hasson identifies three main goals of urban coalitions: maintaining municipal services, enhancing welfare, and economic development. The coalitions are established in innovative organizational structures according to their goals.
