Résumé
Cities with a high global significance in non-physical, functional knowledge economy networks have recently emerged on the Arabian Peninsula. The geo-strategic position of these cities in between rising economies in Asia and traditional centers of economic growth in Europe and North America has influenced the rapid local, urban development in a global knowledge economy context. The present research document presents an analysis of three case-study cities on the Arabian Peninsula : Dubai, Doha and Manama. A newly defined method triangulation shows that non-physical, functional networks and physical, urban development are interdependent. Competitiveness and attractiveness are identified as necessary pre-requisites for cities to retain and extend their significance in the global knowledge economy context. An integrated urban and regional planning approach is seen to be a key instrument to establish global competitiveness and attractiveness.
