Metropolization in Central and Eastern Europe : unequal chances



    () (LEG - CNRS UMR 5118 - MSH - Université de Bourgogne)


Capital cities in CEECs are changing rapidly. Their capacity to join the network of European business metropolises is evaluated here on the basis of their relative specialization in high-order services and their connections with the rest of the world. The comparative analysis covers Bucharest, Budapest, Prague, Sofia and Warsaw. / Les villes capitales des PECO changent rapidement. Sur la base de leur spécialisation relative dans les services supérieurs et de leur connexion au reste du monde, nous évaluons leur capacité à entrer dans le réseau européen des métropoles d'affaires. L'analyse comparative est appliquée à Bucarest, Budapest, Prague, Sofia et Varsovie.
