This dissertation contributes to the literature on urban development politics. It takes a
normative ideal, democratic urban governance, out of the esoteric realm of academic
debate and applies it to a critical case study which concerns the most financially
consequential area of urban policy, that of urban economic development. The
principal elements of democratic urban governance are described, examined, and
reconstructed as a framework for evaluating the policy making potentials in the present
case. Beyond its academic contribution, this dissertation provides developmental
policy makers with an intellectually sound basis for considering, more candidly and
more directly, issues concerning democracy and governance.
