Global Clusters

Executive Summary

27 June 2008ContactSylvie Lartigue, Odile Soulard

For some years now, cluster-focused strategies have been warmly embraced in academic and political circles. The term "cluster" is something of the flavour of the day with the concept proving to be of considerable appeal.
Looking beyond the current fashion for "clusters", the IAU's contribution aims to call on an inventory-based approach to clarify the concept of clusters on the theoretical level and investigate some of its political applications while also selecting and studying global clusters, closer analysis of which may be useful in meeting regional economic challenges.
