This book analyzes and discusses how seemingly placeless processes like the European integration and the economic globalization influence the place they materialize in and the people in this place. This is done through an analysis of the economic, social and spatial development in Brussels in a time of increasing internationalization of the city; and its growth to one of the world's most important political capitals. To analyze the complex processes occurring in Brussels, the author relies on the theoretical framework of the world city hypothesis.

Stockholm Studies in Economic History, No. 32.
