Zum Inhalt:

After Hurricane Sandy struck the Eastern Seaboard of the United States in October 2012, government planners took a novel approach to post-disaster reconstruction. Employing what they referred to as design thinking and practices, they addressed the problem of planning for future catastrophes not exclusively as a matter of technocratic prognostication and decision, but as a problem of organizing diverse experts and diverse publics in an iterative, deliberative process. Building on a coherent “anti-planning” tradition, this process reconfigured the relationship between experts and politics. It also raised the possibility of new urban regimes of living, in which expert authority and democratic choice are reconfigured in ethical practice.

Stephen J. Collier’s studies focus on the contemporary forms of political rationality. Currently he is an Associate Professor and Chair of the Graduate Program for International Affairs at the New School in New York.
