ESPON delivers evidence for the global positioning of Europe

Results by December 2007

“The accelerating globalisation and new emerging markets will have major impacts on Europe and its territory, cities and regions”, states the freshly in print Europe in the World Report of ESPON, the European Observation Network on Territorial Development and Cohesion. Peter Mehlbye, the Director of the ESPON CU underlines, “that the report includes a considerable series of scientifically proved maps, explaining structures and connections between the diversity of countries and regions of Europe and the situation of Europe in the world, in particular in relation to the countries located in its immediate neighbourhood”. The main authors behind the report, Pierre Beckouche, Clarisse Didelon, and Claude Grasland, have delivered the statistical and cartographic evidence on key questions, amongst them: How do global production places and international trade flows affect Europe? What are the consequences of economic and demographic growth and migration for Europe? Where are European gateway cities for the global links of Europe?”
