This week, Researcher Yuliya Voytenko Palgan releases the latest video of the series about governing the sharing economy. New videos will be released each week until the Sharing Cities Summit, co-hosted by the IIIEE, on October 10-11. You can register for the event and find more information on the IIIEE website.

Video Description: Municipalities can also govern sharing economy organisations by providing or withholding practical, material and infrastructural means. The mechanism of providing includes at least four roles: the ‘city as an owner’, the ‘city as a host’, the ‘city as an investor’ and the ‘city as a data provider’. This short film offers examples on how municipalities of Amsterdam, Berlin, Gothenburg, London and Malmö govern the sharing economy through provision. The film is based on the research done in two research projects: Sharing and the City (funded by Swedish Research Council Formas) and Urban Sharing research programme, which has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No. 771872). The film is a part of the Sharing Cities Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) developed at the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE), Lund University, Sweden, and funded through the Sharing Cities Sweden project.
