Abstract

A recent literature has described, on an empirical level, the way in which local industries are organised into ?clusters?, inserted within global industrial and commercial networks. These studies have shown that geographical proximity by itself is not a sufficient condition for co-ordination but can contribute to its efficiency, providing the existence of other shared dimensions among agents: common organisation, representations, projects... Adopting an approach in terms of proximity economics and situated agents, we emphasise the promising perspectives offered by small world concept to provide a theoretical analysis of the properties of clusters.
