Abstract

This presentation comments on the spatio-temporal dynamics of globalization, highlighting how it is shaped by the interaction on different scales between territorial logics and the space of flows. It refers to global cities, major city-regions, inter-regional cooperation, and macro-regional blocs as well as efforts to remove obstacles to the free flow of goods, capital investment, and money capital on a global scale. Particular attention is paid to the similarities and differences between forms of European integration (Europe of cities, Europe of regions, Europe of national states, federalism), to the significance of multi-level government and network governance, and to the dynamics of regional integration in East Asia and beyond. The presentation includes remarks on the North Atlantic financial crisis and the crisis of European integration and also concludes with brief remarks on the future of globalism and regionalism in the light of the global economic crisis.
