The Economic Geography of the Meso-global Spaces: Integrating Multinationals and Clusters at the Local--Global Level

European Planning Studies, 2013, vol. 21, issue 7, 1064-1080

Abstract: The local--global phenomenon literature is fragmented between the fields of international business and economic geography (EG). In the case of the latter, the literature, produced within the global production networks (GPNs) and global value chain frameworks, does not address the central role of firms, especially multinationals which co-locate and connect territories along GPNs. This paper develops a cross-field conceptual integration in order to enrich the EG perspective, using qualitative research methodology to test the framework. The results have important implications for scholars and policymakers.
