Institute of Community Studies Working Paper No.4 – July 2003

This publication outlines the issues explored in a research project by the Institute of Community Studies (now The Young Foundation) looking into the relationship between people and place in London.

There have been a number of books written on the way that processes of globalisation, multinationals and corporations have changed the significance of nations, and on how information technology has shrunk geographical distance. However, there is still a backlog of thinking to be done on the way we think about the world and our place within it, what should be our significant units of space and what are going to be the levels of identity by which we organise our lives.
