Understanding the socio-spatial dynamics and urban patterns of globalizing cities: the case of Istanbul Prof. Dr. Dr. Gülden Erkut Istanbul Technical University (ITU), Faculty of Architecture, Urban and Regional Planning Department,
The objective of this presentation is to present a comprehensive framework to under-stand the socioeconomic and socio-spatial dynamics of globalizing city-regions through the evaluation of the research fi ndings on several localities of Istanbul city-region. First, different perspectives to comprehend globalizing cities are discussed. How can we defi ne and understand characteristics of city-regions in the global era? Can we understand the city-region by measurable indicators, by its identity, by its city- networks, or is it possible only through observing the local conditions for every-day life of citizens and livability in the city. Is it a locality where residents live trans-locally and trans-nationally through their social networks? World city was the center of national economic system, the administrative unit of national economic institutions and national administrative functions are co-located. Whereas global cities are de-fi ned by economic globalization, trans-national networks, trans-national migration, capital and knowledge fl ows; the meaning of border is differentiated in such centers. Specialized services are concentrated there, in addition new types of inequality and poverty emerged in such areas. Regarding the social geography of the Istanbul cityregion the evidence indicates that both internal migration and international migration contribute to increase social inequality and create a pressure on the local labor market. The second part of the presentation presentation will include a critical perspective of the recent planning practices in Istanbul.
