Abstract

In this collection of 15 interdisciplinary articles, contributors describe their work on such issues as changes in perceptions about the role of cities in economic life, new ways of thinking of about social cohesion, and the re-definition of what constitutes responsive governance by looking at both the conceptual level and among key sectors, processes and institutions. Topics include socio-economic changes recently observed in cities, the integration of cities, for example into "urban triangles," the role of knowledge and innovation in the competitiveness of cities, regional dynamics of financial services, linking place and social exclusion to study neighborhoods and poverty, gentrification, neighborhood participation, and labor markets.
