Jonas Schorr addresses the recent growth of city networks, and their overduplification in a two-part series. Along with co-author Andrew Stevens, he argues against the proliferation of grand city-senate ideas and instead to ‘concentrate on creating popular democratic demand for city networking, and on giving more power and media visibility to the knowledge exchange efforts that cities already pursue.’ Read part one here. Read part two here.
