‘Although the ‘century of the nation state’ is over, it casts a long shadow on this ‘century of cities’. The extent to which the long wave of global urbanisation will in hindsight come to be viewed as a success for human development, will in no small part be down to how well nation states and their world cities team up and work together.’
The emergence of ‘world cities’, urban areas that are becoming global in character and orientation, is one of the most important phenomena of our time. World cities1 are where much of the money, the knowledge and the decisions that shape the 21st century are generated. Their influence has propelled humanity beyond the inflection point from the ‘age of the nation state’ and into the ‘age of cities’. And yet this new age inherits all the identities, institutions and organising principles of the nation state system. The tensions, trade-offs and opportunities that arise out of this unstable equilibrium are the subject of this book.
