This workshop is the third of a series of workshops, organized by
the Fondation France-Japon de l’EHESS and supported by the Maison
des sciences de l’homme Paris Nord (MSH Paris Nord).
In the last two decades, the number of cities that assigned
themselves the mission to become “creative cities” has been
increasing. This is closely linked to the rising of creative
industries in the growth of the economy and it is a major trend in
globalization too. The creative city concept emerged as a new
urban model for those cities seeking to enhance their global
ranking in the competitive league of global cities.
Paris and Tokyo hold five top positions in the Global Power City
Index by The Institute for Urban Strategies of the Mori Memorial
Foundation and achieve top ranking in the EY Global Talent in
Global Cities 2015 study due to their cultural heritage and assets
in high tech. The locus of creative industries is concentrated in
big cities especially in the capital in Île-de-France and the
Tokyo Metropolitan Area which privileged as global cities for they
host a dense network of creative industries (Sassen, 2001). Both
cluster strategies are characterized by the decentralization
reform through city-region governance with specific purposes
implementation. The promotion of decentralized governance allows
governance institutions to be more flexible, efficient, and
In order to understand the functioning of governance institutions
in the process of implementing cluster competitiveness, this study
focuses on the cases of “Territoire de la culture et de la
creation” of Plaine Commune in Île-de-France and “Creative city
Yokohama” in Tokyo Metropolitan Area. These two case studies are
best practice examples in clustering creative industries in
Western and Eastern global cities.
