First Published in 1998. A number of future paths of European spatial evolution are developed and discussed in this book. It applies unconventional economic approaches to spatial policy, and in particular to EU-spatial policies. It is concluded that a) the answer to spatial development challenges should not be geo-design but rather strategic guidelines for sectorial policy measures; b) regional policy on the EU's external border has to involve the cities as regional centres in a cross-border network; c) the new perspective on European spatial policy requires a network approach to regional cooperation, which in turn needs an institution monitoring and evaluation continuously the fuctioning of the net.
