This 14 page paper discusses the way in which technology and telecommunications have transformed the urban environment, which is where most people work. The writer discusses three interrelated macro-processes, informationalization, globalization and generalized urban spread in regard to reconstructing the spatial and social structures of societies around the world. The writer argues that current urban policies are inadequate to deal with the problems of modern cities, meaning that they must develop new strategies and take on new roles to strengthen a relationship between local and global communities.
