9783643904232: The Global City Discourse in Urban Transformations: A Comparative View on Johannesburg and Delhi (Stadt- und Regionalforschung)

Just as with many other cities all over the world, both Johannesburg and Delhi feature the vision of becoming global cities. These visions are the localized versions of 'global city concepts' informed by academic discourses, international urban planning practices, and globally circulating images of successful cities. In this book, local discourses on the future of the city show how these visions are transformed in the local context. The experiences from both case studies allow a more precise understanding of cities as active agents in globalization processes. (Series: Urban and Regional Research / Stadt- und Regionalforschung - Vol. 10)
