Abstract

This paper explores and analyses the change in collective arrangements, such as the changing organizational structure and form of the airport, and its effects and consequences on the spatial and economic development of the airport itself and its surrounding areas at the metropolitan level. We use Schiphol airport as case study, and focus our analysis on three main analytical levels: air (development in the aviation sector), money (economic performance), and space (airport spatial expansion and urban planning). The paper show that new collective arrangements may lead to a radical shift in the position and the power of local actors and hence on the decision making concerning the spatial and economic development of localities (in this case the Schiphol and Schiphol region) and the metropolitan regions.
