Local-Global Dynamics in Light of the Structuration Theory
2011 (English)In: Local Development and Creative Industries: empirical, methodological and theoretical reflections / [ed] Conny Pettersson, Dorit Christensen, Visby: Gotland University , 2011, 347-390 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
With the ideas of Anthony Giddens in mind, this chapter discusses how local and global levels interact, how actors both influence their surroundings and are influenced by them. Terms including ”structure”, ”institution”, and ”system” capture the environment in which the actor exists. Furthermore, the manner in which actors and abstract phenomenon mutually influence one another in concrete situations – the so-called ”micro-macro dynamic” – is subjected to in-depth treatment. The discussion turns to reflections on structural duality and local-global dynamics, which are applicable to how actors – principally in Swedish municipalities – react to proposals claiming that the key to financial structural renewal lies in the experience economy and cultural heritage.
