    Labrianidis L., Kalantaridis C. and Dunford M. Delocalization of economic activity: agents, places and industries, Regional Studies. Global integration and the delocalization of economic activity have been two interrelated and defining trends of the last forty years or so. In deciphering these two trends researchers developed a number of theoretical frameworks that focused particularly on informing policy practice. Within this context, this theme issue aspires to use insights gained from rigorous empirical studies in order to advance debate on four key considerations: governance structures, upgrading, labour costs and competitiveness, and future trends and patterns of change. Labrianidis L., Kalantaridis C. and Dunford M. 经济活动的去地方化:行为者、场所以及产业,区域研究。全球整合及经济活动的去 地方化已成为过去四十年间已经证明且相互关联的两大发展趋势。研究者构建了一系 列关注政策实践的理论框架以理解上述趋势。上述理论框架要求使用经验研究中所获 取的结论来提高对于以下四个关键问题的认识:管制结构、产业升级、劳动力成本及 竞争力,以及变化的趋势与模式。 全球化 去地方化 管制结构 升级 经济发展 Labrianidis L., Kalantaridis C. et Dunford M. Delocalisation de l'activite economique : agents, lieux et industries, Regional Studies. Ces quelque quarante dernieres annees ont ete fortement marquees par deux tendances etroitement liees, l'integration mondiale et la delocalisation de l'activite economique. En dechiffrant ces deux tendances, les chercheurs ont developpe un certain nombre de cadres theoriques soulignant tout particulierement la necessite que les pratiques politiques s'appuient sur les donnees probantes de la recherche. Dans ce contexte, ce numero special vise a mettre a profit les enseignements retires de ces etudes empiriques rigoureuses pour faire progresser le debat concernant quatre preoccupations cles : les structures de gouvernance, la modernisation, le cout de la main d'œuvre et la competitivite, ainsi que les tendances et schemas d'evolution futurs. Mondialisation Delocalisation Structures de gouvernance Modernisation Developpement economique Labrianidis L., Kalantaridis C. und Dunford M. Delokalisierung der Wirtschaftstatigkeit: Akteure, Orte und Branchen, Regional Studies. Die globale Integration und die Delokalisierung der Wirtschaftstatigkeit sind seit etwa vierzig Jahren zwei miteinander zusammenhangende und definierende Trends. Zur Entzifferung dieser beiden Trends wurden in der Wissenschaft zahlreiche theoretische Rahmen entwickelt, die sich insbesondere auf eine Gestaltung der politischen Praxis konzentrierten. Innerhalb dieses Kontextes sollen in dieser Sonderausgabe Einblicke genutzt werden, die im Rahmen von grundlichen empirischen Studien gewonnen wurden, um die Debatte im Hinblick auf vier zentrale Aspekte zu vertiefen: Regierungsstrukturen, Verbesserungen, Kosten und Konkurrenzfahigkeit der Arbeitskrafte sowie kunftige Trends und Ablaufe bei Veranderungen. Globalisierung Delokalisierung Regierungsstrukturen Verbesserung Wirtschaftsentwicklung Labrianidis L., Kalantaridis C. y Dunford M. Deslocalizacion de la actividad economica: agentes, lugares e industrias, Regional Studies. La integracion global y la deslocalizacion de la actividad economica han sido dos tendencias interrelacionadas y definidas de aproximadamente los ultimos cuarenta anos. Al descifrar estas dos tendencias, los investigadores desarrollaron una serie de estructuras teoricas que se centraban sobre todo en influir en la elaboracion de politicas. En este contexto, en este numero especial pretendemos utilizar las perspectivas adquiridas a partir de rigurosos estudios empiricos con el objetivo de avanzar el debate en lo que respecta a cuatro consideraciones clave: estructuras de gobierno, mejoras, costes laborales y competitividad, y las futuras tendencias y modelos de cambio.
