Der Begriff der Metropole kennzeichnet üblicher Weise große Städte, die durch die Kombination von hoher Bevölkerungszahl, wirtschaftlicher Stärke und kultureller Ausstrahlung geprägt sind. Parallel dazu werden in jüngster Zeit auch kleinere Standorte beachtet, die relativ rasch gewachsen sind. Als Erklärungsansatz dient hier der Prozess der „Metropolisierung“. Luxemburg ist idealtypisch dafür. [less ▲]

The paper explores the implications that result from rising online shopping and the related patterns of distribution in European cities. The particular consequences of new modes of logistics distribution for cities and for urban planning are being discussed. While the paper is cautious against the assumption of an exploding freight transport resulting from online-shopping behaviour (it yet seems to be moderate so far), the paper calls for a more comprehensive awareness for the overall imprint of logistics changes in urban regions. Respective concepts for urban and transport planning are needed, in order to make cities and their distribution patterns more sustainable. [less ▲]

This chapter takes a critical look at city regions from an urban geography perspective. As subject matter, it first identifies city regions that have evolved through the course of urban growth and expansion, representing an assemblage of an urban core and associated neighbour cities and suburbs that are functionally linked. Second, it also addresses the specialization of some of these city regions that host advanced services, political functions, higher education infrastructure or gateway functions, which make them being classified as ‘metropolitan’ regions. Further, it emphasizes the processes through which regions are labelled and thus created as metropolitan areas: ‘metropolization’. This labelling includes indicator-based observations, political manifestations and also discursive representations. [less ▲]

Die Diskussion über Smart Cities hat in den letzten Jahren einen regelrechten Hype in Stadtpolitik, -forschung und -wirtschaft hervorgebracht. Die digitale Optimierung von Gebäuden, Quartieren oder ganzen Stadträumen, so könnte man Smart Cities definieren, hat auch Luxemburg erfasst. Während das Wirtschaftsministerium die Vision einer intelligenten digitalen Spezialisierung verfolgt, präsentiert sich die Hauptstadt seit geraumer Zeit als Bühne der Smart City. Als Kontrast zu diesen Bildern analysieren wir ein prominentes Beispiel, das die Vision einer kontrollierten, technologisch und ökonomisch durchoptimierten Stadt vermittelt – Quayside, das Konversionsprojekt der Alphabet Inc. in Torontos Hafengebiet.

This chapter deals with the particular geographies of global maritime industries and their implications for concrete places, most notably port cities. In order to provide an up-to-date picture on this subject matter, we firstly apply a supply chain perspective regarding maritime and port geographies, since the movement of ocean vessels and the territorial or geographical impact of these flows cannot be separated from the underlying logistics networks, or their spatio-temporal performance and overarching political-economic power configuration. Secondly, we employ a relational perspective with respect to ports, cities and their interaction against the background of globalised logistics networks. This relational approach is inspired by understanding cities and regions as increasingly dependent on, and co-constituted by, larger associations, networks, mobilities and identities, rather than conceiving these entities as fixed in territories within a bounded space, delineated by clear margins. For illustrative purposes, we add some empirical insights from two cases studies on related developments in the Netherlands, particularly the port city of Rotterdam and the inland port situated in Venlo.

This chapter examines the development of a large-scale urban development project launched in the early 2000s: the so-called Science City (Cité des Sciences) in Belval, Luxembourg. The Science City is located in the heart of the Grand Duchy’s former industrial region, right between the city of Esch-sur-Alzette and its neighbour municipality Sanem. The development has taken place on the site of a decommissioned steel mill. It now hosts the University of Luxembourg’s main campus as well as a variety of other research institutions. State authorities responsible for the planning and implementation of the Science City purport to comply with (seemingly) innovative sustainable urban planning and design principles, whose guiding concepts derive from related city-university projects across the world. The project is, however, subject to a variety of challenges. Besides meeting the market’s demands for new space, such challenges include the provision of a balanced setting for development beyond economic purposes, the proper integration of the site in the existing built environment, the establishment of a governance structure that reflects the division of powers, functions and users, as well as preventing collisions between the worlds of knowledge production and the old industrial working-class milieus. Given the size of the project and the associated economic risks, along with the rather traditional planning approach of the institutions involved, path dependence and governance lock-ins may embody persistent challenges to the Science City.

Maritime industries are very important enablers of global trade: ports have already been coined ‘frontline soldiers of globalisation’ (Ducruet and Lee, 2006), and global cities are often port cities. Likewise, port institutions can be viewed as ideal global city makers, in the way they are targeting global flows for serving local interests. In this context, this chapter explores the city and the port of Hamburg, Germany. As a paradigmatic case of local–global governance, the Albert Ballin Konsortium is discussed, which was founded in 2008 in order to ensure local stakes in the Hapag-Lloyd shipping line and to avoid its takeover by a global competitor. The chapter discusses the conflict between the increasing de-coupling of maritime services from the traditional mainport and local political strategies. The research reveals the not so common case of a somehow reluctant global (port) city, due to the city makers’ strong concern for local interests. [less ▲]

In this chapter, I discuss the interplay of urban theory and practice in the context of the science-policy interface: a space of mutual engagement of research and related practices in the urban arena. My case study analyses the work of the German Advisory Council on Global Change (Wissenschaftlicher Beirat der Bundesregierung Globale Umweltveränderungen, WBGU), most notably its 2016 report on global urbanisation (WBGU 2016). By presenting the big narrative of the planet becoming entirely urbanised, there is a certain positivism and essentialism underlying this report that fails to acknowledge political conflict and what went wrong in the past. This contradicts the lofty political ambitions of the advisory council. I conclude that the WGBU’s policy advice and consultation is limited because it does not consider the murky and messy nature of politics and, thus, does not provide sufficient orientation for practice. This case study therefore illustrates the difficulties and problems when research and practice interact. [less ▲]

This paper (written in German) provides a reflection on a conceptual framework for transforming mobility policies and practices. It was developed in Germany in the context of the then emerging idea for transforming energy policies (Energiewende). The aim was to put together related concepts for the sustainable development of the demand for, and supply of, mobility and transport and related contexts (Verkehrswende). It was first presented in book format 25 years ago. On that occasion, and since the term has gained some attention and recognition in political realms recently, the concept is subject to a critical reflection from today's perspective. [less ▲]

The digital economy is a catalyst for the circulation of people, goods and information, affecting both urban and non-urban realms. This chapter uses the empirical case of Amazon.com to discuss the digital and physical arrangement of production, labour, distribution, advertising, purchasing, and consumption as a means of creating particular spaces of politics. What started as mail order retail for books about 20 years ago can now be understood as an all-encompassing platform for performing a variety of socio-economic practices. These practices evolve from disruptive innovation and are backed by venture capital as well as an aggressive market strategy, leading to a compartmentalized organisation of value chains. The related implications on place, space and territory reveal a certain “logics of dislocation” (Barnes 1996), creating particular spaces of circulation both in urban centres and peripheries. The abstract system’s imperative not only steers the orchestration of the firm’s network but also, given its hegemony in online-markets, threatens to assume an almost totalitarian form. It thus also performs as a powerful agent of policy-making. Against this background, the chapter explores the spaces of circulation and related politics that are produced and reproduced by Amazon.com. [less ▲]
