From Europe of States to Europe of Networks

Image Picker for Section 0

The continent of Europe with yellow lines mapping economic networks.

​The economic map of Europe has changed dramatically over the past three decades. Spatial flows of capital, goods, services and labour have intensified dramatically, but unevenly and in a very differentiated manner. A series of economic crises over the past three decades has also produced an uneven geography of costs and benefits. Brexit is likely to complicate Europe’s political and economic geography further. Mega-cities, regions and firms are at the centre of this spatial arrangement. Instead of well-structured and legally bounded variable geometry we have spontaneous, informal and hybrid cooperative arrangements between numerous private and public actors. The objective of this lecture is to grasp the scope and nature of this ongoing change.
