Dialogue on urban cultures [Recurs electrònic] : globalization and culture in an urbanizing world

Contributor(s): Publication details: Barcelona : Forum 2004, 2004Description: 14 pOnline resources: Summary: The present paper discusses the ways in which culture, in the context of globalization, is influencing social and economic patterns and processes within cities all over the world. The first section reviews the overall effects of globalization on urban culture, including the role of new information and communication technology. This is followed by a discussion of how a particular aspect of globalization, namely, international migration, is giving rise to culturally cosmopolitan cities in which urban ethnic spaces are emerging, often in the form of ethnic ghettos. The next section examines how cities all over the world are using culture as a central component of urban development strategies that are designed to capitalize on the economic benefits of globalization. The concluding section discusses the ways in which globalization is likely to shape urban culture in future, and some of the key issues with which planners and managers of so-called “globalizing cities” have to contend. The paper ends with a few points for discussion at the second session of the World Urban Forum. (Font: Resum)
