Abstract [en]

Starting from metropolitan governance theory, this article explores and discusses place-specific institutional preferences among Swedish citizens with regard to city-regional governance. City-regional tendencies in the Swedish political context are described and, specifically, survey data from the Umeå and Göteborg areas in Sweden are utilized in two ways. First, three ideal-typical governance categories are conceptualized drawing on empirical patterns in the survey material. Preferences for the three emergent categories Status Quo, Regionalization, and Consolidation are then tested against independent variables measuring personal resources, sense of place, mobility, political view, and city-regional context. By way of multiple regression analysis, the article concludes with a discussion about some expected and unexpected results. In the final analysis, individual preferences for the three different models of city-regional governance seem to be influenced first and foremost by level of education and sense of place and whether or not the individual resides in a municipality which belongs to the core or to the periphery of the area.
