Nordic intercity connectivity

A study of the Nordic capital regions' national and international intercity connectivity shows that notions of the national, Nordic, European and global urban systems need to be challenged to formulate relevant future urban policies.

Inspired by the work of the Globalization and World Cities Research Network (GaWC) and the POLYNET-study (cf. Hall/Pain 2006) on exploring connectivity values for cities through intra-firm office networks, a 'modified Nordic-based bottom-up study' was designed and carried. The working paper illustrates and discusses the results of this quantitative study, which was conducted between January 2010 and December 2011.
