Since the 1970s, the acceleration of economic and social globalisation processes has significantly changed working and living environments in both urban and rural areas. In the meantime, however, opposite developments have come to the fore in the wake of increasing de-globalisation. In light of this, several experts speak of disconnection phenomena or the emergence of new forms of regionalisation.

In this context, the “63rd ISIG Study Week” intends to discuss the topic of globalisation and de-globalisation in a long historical perspective. In essence, the aim is to show to what extent urban and regional action spaces have changed in the wake of globalisation and what interactions can be detected in this development. This corresponds to a change in historical research, which today no longer studies the global transfer of people, goods, ideas and social practices in general, but rather focuses on distinct places or spaces.

The Study Week will discuss the effects of globalisation and de-globalisation on the basis of selected major cities and regions around the world.
