ABSTRACT

Beyond understanding urban regeneration as neoliberal urban development strategy or postdevelopmental/postneoliberal strategy, the governmentality approach allows us to see urban regeneration as a governmentalization program which aims to sustain the nation-state and civil society through the construction of citizens’ autonomous and voluntary cooperation by minimizing their critiques and resistances to government. In addition to this, this paper focuses on how urban regeneration as a governmentalization program is constructed through the (re)territorialization strategy in the Sewoon Urban Regeneration Area, Eulji-ro. The governmentality approach with an emphasis on (re)territorialization help us reveal that urban regeneration as a governmental discourse and program arranges the subjects and spaces to govern by territorializing a specific locality and autonomous operation principles rather than aims for governmentalization of the whole state space.
