LACERDA, Alan Daniel Freire de. Collective action and intermunicipal cooperation in two metropolises. Cad. CRH [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.61, pp. 153-166. ISSN 0103-4979. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-49792011000100011.
This paper mainly aims to develop a theory of collective action relevant to the analysis of problems of metropolitan cooperation. Taking as such preliminary cases the metropolitan areas of Recife and Natal, this work also aims to establish which incentives municipalities belonging to such regions have to cooperate in solving typically intermunicipal problems. The theoretical and methodological choice of this paper leads to the conclusion that the issues related to metropolitan management can not be separated from variables related to the integration of the counties to the main city in the region.The empirical work done in the partial implementation of the model sistematizes qualitative and quantitative data from research done by others over the two regions mentioned.
