THE STATE AND THE CITY: URBAN DEVELOPMENT IN THE ENVIRONMENT OF CHANGING POWER RELATIONS (Valstybe IR Miestas: Urbanistine Pletra Galiu Persiskirstymo Aplinkoje)
Languages of publication
The paper examines the changing character of nation / state power and power relationships between state, regions and cities under the conditions of rapid grobalization and postfordist capitalism. European states, regions and cities sustain not only the pressure of globalizational factors and challenges, but they are the targets of Euro-integrational policy, especcially that of Euro-regionalization and urbanization. A part of state power is transmitted up to a supranational level and some part - down to regional and local levels, thus the authorities of a subnational level are empowered to act on their own account for good competitive positions in domestic and global markets. Some peculiarities of Lithuania's transition to a capitalist system are highlighted and landmarks of urbanization are concidered. Attention is paid to Vilnius urban development from the point of view of European regional and urban development policy trends.
