CITY REGIONS: CREATING NEW URBAN FUTURES?
Monday 18th October 2004
London Voluntary Sector Resource Centre, 356 Holloway Road, London, N7 6PA

City-regions are emerging as significant territories with a growing 
economic, social and political significance in the context of heightened 
globalisation and urbanisation.  Some see city-regions as key nodes within 
an increasingly interdependent global economy.  Successful regions are 
interpreted as having successful cities at their core, capable of 
contributing to competitiveness and social cohesion.  More critical views 
draw attention to their socio-spatial inequalities and lack of sustainable 
development.  The growth and diversity of city-regions raises an array of 
economic, social, cultural and governance challenges for research, policy 
and practice.  This conference seeks to critically engage with urban futures 
generated by the development and promotion of city-regions.
