Amin, A. (2004) 'Regions unbound : towards a new politics of place.', Geografiska annaler : series B, human geography., 86 (1). pp. 33-44.
This paper proposes a non-territorial reading of a politics of place. Focusing on the politics of contemporary regionalism, it argues that globalisation and the general rise of a society of transnational flows and networks no longer allow a conceptualisation of place politics in terms of spatially bound processes and institutions. The second part of the paper outlines an alternative politics of place that works with the varied distanciated geographies that cut across a given region.
