The Making of Global City Regions

Johannesburg, Mumbai/Bombay, São Paulo, and Shanghai

Edited by Klaus Segbers
As sites for economic, social, and political innovation, Johannesburg, Mumbai/Bombay, São Paulo, and Shanghai function as gateways to the global economy for their respective countries and the surrounding regions. City administrators face intense competition for foreign investment, and they must develop strategies to make their cities—which remain outside of the OECD—world class.

The Making of Global City Regions traces the emergence of each city in the global economy and examines the link between the dynamics of globalization and changing urban governances. The contributors describe how metropolitan leaders deal with the twin phenomena of globalization and the devolution of the state as they adjust to their city's new emerging role in the global system.

The contributors provide an overview of the individuals and organizations who make each city competitive in a global context and describe how they market and promote themselves to the world. In addition, senior administrators of these regions—Roland Hunter, Vidyadhar K. Phatak, Jorge Wilheim, and Zhu Linchu, respectively—offer valuable insight into the development of their city regions. The volume concludes with a summary of lessons learned.

Contributors: Robert A. Beauregard, Csaba Deák, Ranjit Hoskote, Roland Hunter, Pedro Jacobi, Zhu Linchu, Alan Mabin, Jim Masselos, Susan Parnell, Sujata Patel, Vidyadhar K. Phatak, Sueli Schiffer Klaus Segbers, Zhongxin Sun, Richard Tomlinson, Krister Volkmann, Jorge Wilheim, Fulong Wu, and Weiping Wu.
