Abstract/Summary The terms ‘World City’ and ‘Global City’ have been used interchangeably for the past two decades in reference to how the process of globalisation plays out on an urban scale, actively (re)formulating both policy and space. As domestic economies become subsumed by more global modes of production, a conceptualisation of cities as such is critical to understanding how cities are shaped by processes beyond the national scale. Most of the literature in this vein focuses on the corporate geographies of the industrialised world and New York and London are nearly invariably situated at the top of the global meta-hierarchy. This paper overviews how Australian cities are situated within the current literatures on World/Global Cities and suggests future pathways for the development of this research theme in a more nuanced and localised context.
