Managing Cities at Night

This accessible guide provides a stimulating analysis of the governance of the night-time economy in cities for practitioners and newcomers alike.

Drawing on a wide range of case studies of after-dark activity in cities around the world, it reviews labour, environmental, healthcare, the role of leaders including night mayors, managers and commissioners, and the influence of both public and private sectors.

Offering invaluable insights for the future of night-time governance during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, this book deepens our understanding of the benefits, challenges and impacts of a neglected aspect of the economy.

"This book brings tremendous value to the emerging policy field of night-time governance. As a former night mayor I value how this guide provides analysis of the governance of the night-time economy in cities for practitioners and newcomers alike." Mirik Milan, co-founder of VibeLab and former Amsterdam night mayor
