Abstract

International management centres are based on production-control functions. They comprise headquarters as bases of operation and beachheads co-ordinating foreign branches and subsidiaries, which are sustained by advanced business services, financial and real estate services and corporate services making an economic formation. The spatial and social structures of many city regions are strongly affected by the development of these international management centres. Segmentation processes in the housing and labour markets can be related to these formations
