LaVanguardia Dossier - City Power Issue: Global Cities and the Future of World Order

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationEditorial


A new form of city emerged alongside contemporary globalization: the Global City. Global cities have become a central component of a political project to create a global market. Such cities have, after decades of growth and transformation, now begun to develop their own political capabilities. It may be possible that we are witnessing a recalibration of the relationship between the city and the state, and the emergence of a novel form of global political order.
