Chapter 11: Epilogue: towards a research agenda for city-region regeneration economies: from artificial intelligence, the gig economy to air pollution
This chapter calls for a research focus that emphasises understanding the city-region regeneration economy plexus. There are perhaps two alternative approaches to understanding city-regions. First, are approaches that begin with theorising global production networks and the ways they are strategically coupled with regional economies. This approach highlights global processes first and regional processes second. Second, are approaches that begin with understanding city-regions. These studies position regions within the context of global flows but much of the research focuses is on understanding city-region processes and their impacts at a variety of spatial scales. Research tends to adopt a micro (people/firms), meso (regional including agglomerations or clusters) or macro (global interactions) approach. What is absent is a concern with the development of a more integrated or systematic approach to understanding city-region regeneration economies. This is an ambitious and provocative research agenda, but it is one that will go some way towards unravelling the dynamics of the city-region regeneration economy plexus.
