British Cities in a Global System: What can we offer international learning?

British Cities in a Global System: What can we offer international learning?

Greg Clark and Tim Moonen in association with Edinburgh City Council and The Work Foundation
01 July 2009

We are bombarded by data and analysis that shows the weaknesses or challenges faced by British Cities. We are aware of the many different and potentially better arrangements that cities may have in a wide variety of other countries. But getting better means knowing our strengths as well as our weaknesses. An assessment of the strengths of UK cities gives us something to leverage and build upon as we try to make improvements, as well as something to bring to international learning. This paper, written by Greg Clark and Tim Moonen of Cities and Regions and produced in association with Edinburgh City Council and The Work Foundation, has sought informed international opinion on what UK cities are good at, where they lead or innovate, and where they are relevant as sources of lessons, expertise, and insights for other cities at a global scale.
