  • Globalization ; Large city ; Right to the city ; Urban geography ; Urban policy ; Urban social movement ; Urban society ; Urbanization
  • In Le Droit à la Ville (1968), Lefebvre projects the urban trajectory of his day into the sci-fi imaginary of Asimov's remarkable Foundation series. In La Révolution Urbaine (1970), Lefebvre had already begun hinting at a new reality, not only

  • world (dis)order. The article tries to rethink theoretically the urban question and the question of urban politics in our era of planetary urbanization, working through the political role of the urban in the light of recent ‘Occupy’ mobilizations.

  • the early 1970s Amsterdam has become an international centre, has developed into a polycentric urban region and has been acquiring ethnically mixed quarters. So in Amsterdam the planning doctrine was not particularly successful.

  • Over the past twenty years urban “networking” has become a rule of behaviour in the European Union. This article concerns the development of urban networks within the European urban geography. Urban networks have an important role in disseminating
  • a development model for urban areas by bringing together a diverse range of cities around common problems in order to create common understandings of how to address these problems—the new ‘conventional wisdom’. These networks have also developed a range
  • of different methods “to be active” in order to achieve different territorial outcomes. In that sense, which are the outcomes of those cities that have shown a strong “ aptitude in urban networking ” ? - (BJ)

  • ) needs to be examined in practice. This explanation is based on the regional policy objective of extending and developing urban networks. It is exemplary description of current urban interdependences and inter-urban co-operation. - (MT)
