Biography

Pauline McGuirk is a human geographer, specialising in urban political geography. She is known particularly for her work on geographies of urban governance, including her recent body of work on the role of cities in climate governance. Her research has been supported by 8 ARC grants (5 ARC Discovery Grants and 3 ARC Linkage Grants) and substantial external funding, including from the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility. Her expertise has been acknowledged by appointment as international grant reviewer for the ESRC, Academy of Finland, European Science Foundation and ARC.

Pauline became Director of the Centre for Urban and Regional Studies (CURS) in 2006. The Centre has an established national reputation and growing international status in research and research higher degree training. Pauline's editorial duties include:  Editor, Progress in Human Geography (2015-);  editorial board member of of Geography Compass, Irish Geography, Geographical Research and Territory, Politics and Governance.

Research Expertise
Pauline McGuirk's primary expertise is in urban political geography. Her major interests are the changing practices and politics of urban governance institutions, their changing territorial and scalar organisation, and their implications for the urban spaces, places and subjectivities they produce. Her recent work has focussed particularly on the role of cities in climate governance, pathways to urban low carbon transitions and related social and political implications. In 2013 she and her co-researchers (Dowling [Macquaire] and Bulkeley [Durham, UK]) convened a public panel discussion on Responding to Climate Change: An Urban Challenge? which brought together leading practitioners and researchers to publicly discuss cities’ positioning in climate change response. Methodologically, McGuirk's expertise lies in the field of qualitative research. She has expertise in the methods of in-depth interviewing and discourse analysis. Her research habitually engages in the use of heuristic case studies and thick description to inform theoretical developments. In 2015 Pauline was appointed as an Editor of Progress in Human Geography.

Teaching Expertise
McGuirk is an award-winning tertiary teacher (UoN VC's Award for Excellence in Teaching, Fac of SCIT, 2005) with formal Education qualifications (Dip. Ed, Grade I) and a record of publishing award-winning teaching materials. Throughout her career she has taught all levels from first year through to honours level. Her substantive areas of teaching expertise cover Urban Geography, Social Geography, Urban Politics and Governance, Globalisation and Urban Change, and Qualitative Geographical methodologies.

Administrative Expertise
Pauline has been involved in a wide range of administrative roles across at School, Faculty and University level. In particular, she has contributed to policy development, implementation and administration in research management, research training, and scholarly information access. She is Director of the Centre for Urban and Regional Studies (2006-) and was Deputy Head of School, Environmental and Life Sciences (2011-2013) managing c160 RHD students.

2015Mcguirk PM, O'Neill PM, Mee KJ, 'Effective Practices for Interagency Data Sharing: Insights from Collaborative Research in a Regional Intervention', Australian Journal of Public Administration, (2015)

Data sharing adds considerable value to interagency programs that seek to tackle complex social problems. Yet data sharing is not easily enacted either technically or as a governance practice, especially considering the multiple forms of risk involved. This article presents insights from a successful data sharing project in a major region in east coast Australia involving a federally funded research partnership between two universities and a number of human services agencies. The Spatial Data Analysis Project sought to establish a community of practice for devising data sharing protocols and embedding data sharing into agency practices. Close dialogue between the project partners and mobilizing the authority of extant regulatory and legal frameworks proved effective in confronting risks and barriers. The article reveals effective practices for data sharing and derives lessons for other policy and governance contexts.

Cities, and particularly urban local governments, are now widely recognised for their part in the complex, multilevel landscape of climate governance and carbon reduction. Nonetheless local government projects and initiatives are often framed as of limited value, outside the formal governance framework, and unable to contribute systematically. In contrast, this paper locates these initiatives as already part of the way in which governing climate and carbon is conducted and as governance experiments. We provide a descriptive analysis of these initiatives across Australia's capital cities, highlighting the domains, mechanisms, and partners through which they operate. We illustrate the enactment of experimentation through a detailed examination of the Sydney-based initiative termed Treading Lightly, drawing out in particular the workings of institutional experimentation and experimentation in governance practices. We conclude with brief reflections on the governance implications of such experimentation and their importance as a site in the emergent politics of urban carbon governance.

This paper addresses the governance of transitions to lower carbon cities. Drawing on both governmentality and neo-Gramscian perspectives, we chart and explore the diverse objects, subjects, means and ends evoked as governmental programs, or hegemonic projects in-the-making, are shaped to orchestrate urban carbon governance. We ask about the diversity of what is being sought through the governance of carbon in the city, how this is rendered and how carbon is being made to matter in the city. We do so through analysis of an audit of carbon governance initiatives in Australian cities, and a characterisation of these initiatives as four distinctive governmental programs. To make sense of the diverse ecology of initiatives revealed, we adopt a typological approach to suggest four distinctive governmental programs-Behaviour change; Demonstration; Transition; and Advocacy. We suggest that Australia's emergent landscape of urban carbon governance both reproduces existing governance orderings and contains openings-via fragile emergent hegemonic projects-that might produce more transformative orderings: not least because of the demands and politics the low carbon subjects being invoked might be empowered to pursue but also because of the potential reconfiguration of the 'integral state' as new governmental programs are imagined and enacted. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

2014McGuirk P, Dowling R, Bulkeley H, 'Repositioning urban governments? Energy efficiency and Australia's changing climate and energy governance regimes', Urban Studies, 51 2717-2734 (2014) [C1]

Urban local governments are important players in climate governance, and their roles are evolving. This review traces the changing nexus of Australia's climate policy, energy policy and energy efficiency imperatives and its repositioning of urban local governments. We characterise the ways urban local governments' capacities and capabilities are being mobilised in light of a changing multi-level political opportunity structure around energy efficiency. The shifts we observe not only extend local governments' role in implementing climate change responses but also engage them as partners in conceiving and operationalising new measures, suggesting new ground is being opened in the urban politics of climate governance. A review of the Australian context provides important insights for the new politics of energy in the city as, internationally, energy efficiency is reframed as a climate change issue and the city is repositioned as an important strategic space in energy politics and the governance of energy systems. © Urban Studies Journal Limited 2014.

2014Dowling R, McGuirk P, Bulkeley H, 'Retrofitting cities: Local governance in Sydney, Australia', Cities, 38 18-24 (2014) [C1]

Transforming cities to a lower carbon future is one of the key challenges of contemporary urban governance. Retrofitting the city - or modifying existing urban infrastructures, buildings and daily life to suit different energy sources and different expectations of energy consumption - is essential to this transformation. In urban studies, little focus has yet been applied to the shape and character of urban governance frameworks and mechanisms required to successfully retrofit cities. In this paper we address this lacuna by exploring the logics, practices and dynamics of retrofitting governance in the Australian city. Using a governmentality perspective, the paper identifies the involvements of different scales of government in retrofitting policies and mechanisms and connections between them. Based on a unique survey of carbon reduction initiatives involving government, business and community actors across Australia's capital cities, we outline the types of retrofitting solutions being proposed and enacted. Using a focus on local initiatives from Sydney, Australia's largest city, the paper documents four key techniques through which retrofitting is being governed - self-governing, holistic, facilitative and educative. The findings suggest that governance gaps remain in attending to the daily life of technologies and the materiality of daily life. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

The paper reviews the manner in which urban planning in Dublin has changed in response to central government urban renewal initiatives and an increasing ethos of entrepreneurialism within the local authority of Dublin Corporation. The paper outlines the marginalization of local planning functions and the undermining of planning powers through the establishment of special purpose renewal agencies. Dublin Corporation planners have consequently sought refuge in integrated micro-area planning, marking a shift in philosophy regarding the appropriate role for planning in the context of entrepreneurial governance. The paper provides an empirical account of the relationship between changing approaches to urban renewal and the evolution of local planning practice, noting the challenges and opportunities for urban planning created by altered governance structures and approaches.
