Skills and Cities (Hardcover)
about this item
Creative industries have become fundamental in signalling the economic wellbeing or otherwise or urban regions and the workers who are attracted to the sector tend to have strong preferences when it comes to the neighbourhoods they want to live in.
This book analyses the role of urban amenities in forming these residential preferences and the implications for urban and regional policy across a range of European cities, concentrating on the Netherlands but also drawing conclusions from the Scandinavian capital cities of Copenhagen and Helsinki.
