Journal description

The Tijdschrift voor Economische en Sociale Geografie is a leading international journal on contemporary issues in human geography committed to promoting rigorous academic work on the field. Through its scholarly articles and special 'dossiers' on topics of interest it brings you the latest research findings from Europe and around the world in authoritative scientific contributions. The journal bridges the gap between continental European practices of geography and the Anglo-American traditions by including articles from both regions. The Tijdschrift is a channel for the dissemination of new perspectives ideas and approaches to the study of human geography. Regular features of the journal are its Outlook on Europe and Window on The Netherlands sections which discuss current spatial trends and policies from a Dutch geographical perspective. The Netherlands in Maps Each issue of Tijdschrift includes maps demonstrating the distribution of key phenomena in Dutch society. Drawing on statistical data from past and present these maps provide visual representation of the characteristics of and changes in the human geography of The Netherlands. The theme for 2000 is: Crime in The Netherlands. From time to time the maps are collected in an annotated atlas which provides a welcome thematic addition to standard atlases.

    ABSTRACT: There is no ‘supra-theory’, which might synthesise potential theoretical approaches for the study of multi-local living. Three selected theoretical perspectives are discussed: according to rational choice theory (RCT), multiple localisations represent just one of a number of choices, selected on the basis of individual preferences and given restrictions. Sociology of everyday life (SEL) addresses the reproduction of social life by focusing on practices of actors within the various social frameworks of multi-local everyday life. Actor-network theory (ANT) provides a ‘toolkit’ to ‘de-scribe’ the hybrid enactment of multi-local households. Materiality, processes, and multiplicity are emphasised. Each perspective reflects partial realities of the multiplicity of multi-local living. It is argued that the modelling of residential multi-locality pursued by the three approaches is highly productive if their results are compared with one another and interpreted as versions of reality differently shaped, which are partly congruent, partly incongruent due to incommensurable ontological and theoretical positions.

    ABSTRACT: This paper investigates how eleven Dutch small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) transnationalised with East and Southeast Asian economies by means of establishing a foreign subsidiary. The study's aim is to elucidate how firms learned to become a transnational corporation and to gauge the relevance of the firm's external networks in the acquisition of the appropriate knowledge. The paper conceptualises SME transnationalisation as an organisational process that can be understood by theories developed in innovation studies. Through qualitative research on transnationalisation pathways, inferences are drawn on the skills and routines that are necessary to bridge institutional differences and the process by which these skills are acquired and routinised within the firm.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this paper is to trace community and regional responses to the economic downturn of 2008/2009 in Northern British Columbia, Canada. Our research during this period (2009–2011), the Northern Economic Vision II (NEV II) project, sought to investigate whether communities in the region were incorporating some of the core findings, lessons from an earlier project, the NEV I project (conducted in 2002–2005), in terms of preparing for both economic uncertainty and opportunity through place-oriented community planning and enhanced regional collaboration. Findings suggest that in the face of economic hardship, many communities continued to pursue community and regionally-oriented strategies in an attempt to preserve services and quality of life for local residents, and did not engage in reactive budget cuts in the face of economic decline, as experienced in previous bust periods.

    ABSTRACT: This paper investigates the theoretical concept that a city is always influenced by the relations it has to its hinterland and to other cities. Taylor and colleagues point out that city-city relations and city-hinterland relations can be understood as two sides of a coin. Using this conception the polycentric structure and dynamics of the German urban system can be described through: (i) metropolitan functions representing city-hinterland relations (cosmopolitanity) and (ii) a network of cities representing city-city relations (connectivity). Measuring separately the degrees of cosmopolitanity and connectivity, we look at whether the German urban system after reunification has grown together, becoming one balanced urban system, and what role Berlin – as the new capital in the overall system – now has. The results of the two perspectives are compared and analysed.
