Re-creation of the European City investigates the position of regions and cities both within Europe, and in a global context. It addresses the challenges that cities and city regions currently encounter: reconciling economic growth, dynamism, and creativity while at the same time countering segregation and social and spatial exclusion. The volume reflects an emerging consensus that spatial and urban planning and development are increasingly interwoven. The effect of spatial and urban planning on economic development and its impact on territorial and social cohesion are current concerns.
