CPD Research Fellow Publishes New Book on Global Cities and Diplomacy
Feb 21, 2013
2011-2013 CPD Research Fellow Michele Acuto recently published Global Cities, Governance, and Diplomacy: The Urban Link as a part of the Routledge New Diplomacy Series. The topic of this book highlights the growing importance of global cities in world politics:
"The book argues that looking at global cities can bring about three fundamental advantages on traditional IR paradigms. First, it facilitates an eclectic turn towards more nuanced analyses of world politics. Second, it widens the horizon of the discipline through a multiscalar image of global governance. Third, it underscores how global cities have a strategic diplomatic positioning when it comes to core contemporary challenges such as climate change."
