On the basis of a study of an INTERREG IV A-project in Norway, the AA. question how and by whom the discourse regarding what is attractive about places is constructed and how the implicit or explicit knowledge is treated in local planning. They find that planning must produce knowledge in which the different narratives about place confront each other, and highlight differences and mutual debate between adversaries. They conclude by arguing the case for applying a model of agonistic pluralism where the coproduction of discursive knowledge from ‘a logic of difference’ is at the heart of planning
