European Polycentricity and emerging Mega-City-Regions – "one size fits all" policy?

Abstract : This paper provides a series of conclusions derived from a Special issue of Built Environment on the Polycentric Metropolis in Europe. Based on the results of the European POLYNET research program, the authors discuss the reality and forms of Mega-City-Regions in Europe before critically addressing some pressing issues related to city-regions development. The paper concludes on polycentricity as a fuzzy paradigm that needs to be more critically discussed.
