Aims and methods

There are two overarching aims to the project: (i) to explore and compare the local effects of globalisation ("glocalisation") and European integration by examining a number of towns and city trajectories in the late 20th century; (ii) to explore how city authorities have perceived and responded to the socio-economic, political and technological challenges to which they have been subjected during the second half of the 20th century.
