Efficiency and Effectiveness of Partnership in Southern European Metropolitan Administration

  • Javier Font
Chapter

Abstract

After their serious decline in the 1960s and 1970s, European metropolitan areas have experienced substantial growth in the 1980s and the 1990s. This growth is closely related to the rise of the “knowledge society”, based on the production and the distribution of intangible assets. Metropolitan areas have managed to foster and attract knowledge, innovation, and culture in a greater measure than other areas. Moreover, their upgraded transportation and telecommunication infrastructure provides quick access to the global market.
