Common Good Orientation in Urban Development. How does this work?

In 2017, two studies were commissioned by the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district in Berlin, which were initiated by a number of urban political activists in the tenant movement and the bottom up movement. The aim was to define the tasks of an agency for common-good-oriented urban development and coordinated action between organised civil society, the district administration and the various non-profit actors in housing provision and real estate development. Meanwhile the newly established agency is preparing for its second phase. How can scientific practice between policy-making and self empowerment of civil society become effective?
