HARRIS, Nigel. Globalisation and Trends in the Management of Cities. Gest. polít. pública [online]. 2006, vol.15, n.1, pp.169-199. ISSN 1405-1079.

This paper seeks to present a view of the era of globalization through highlighting particular changes which mark the break with the preceding period, the heyday of the nation-State. The exercise is undertaken in order to assess the resulting radical changes in the conception of spatial planning and thus the emergence of a new agenda for the management of cities. Following the introduction, the second part seeks to clarify what might be meant by "globalization", and the third, the main features of the management of the old order. The fourth concerns the transition from one to the other, and the fifth, the emerging new agenda. The penultimate part concerns the emergence of a city of services, and the paper concludes with a discussion of some of the issues concerned with the governance of the new order.

Keywords : globalization; management and planning of cities.
