This book examines the use of strategic planning and projects in 15 cities in developing and developed countries, drawing on the experiences of a global network of researchers (the IBIS network) investigating the relationship between globalization and urbanization processes. It uses a common methodology to draw out similarities and differences of these policies and projects and the nature of the globalization processes they are responding to. The cities are: Bilbao, Bogota, Buenos Aires, Cordoba, San Salvador, Santiago, Singapore, and Tucuman.
