This paper examines the governance of European World Cities from four perspectives leading to a consideration of the potential for European cities to contribute to developing the networks of cooperation and coordination that existing international institutions fail to deliver. The paper starts with a brief review of the governance challenges facing London, Paris and other cities before examining the EU’s perspective on the system of European cities. We consider tensions between Europe’s spatial policy and its world cities. A third perspective takes us into debate about the wider economic connectivity of world cities and the final part of the paper goes on to consider the advantages Europe’s World Cities may have in making the institutional and policy connections to enable world city networks to tackle global environmental challenges.
