Glocalization 

This term is a blend of "globalization" and "localization" that captures the way that the various actions of government continually affect the global-local interface, i.e., "thinking globally and acting locally."

Borja and Castells, 1997. 

 

Supporters of this global-local connection assert that global phenomena find local expression within a powerful spatial context.
