Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Taking the idea that today all cities are more or less integrated into world-wide relationships as a point of departure, the article presents a methodological approach with which inter-urban linkages can be empirically determined under the conditions of globalization. This conceptualization of a global city network, which has been developed by the Globalization and World Cities Study Group and Network (GaWC), is based on the analysis of the locational networks of globally active service firms, but it can also be transferred to other organizations, in order to achieve a more comprehensive global city profile that integrates political, cultural and social linkages. - (IFL)
