Are neighbourhoods still important in a globalised and connected world? Does it still make sense to look at the neighbourhood level to understand the dynamics of change in and of the urban fabric? How do social networks and space - mainly neighbourhoods - interact with one another? The introduction deals with these questions starting from the articles of the volume presented at the session "How much do urban neighbourhoods matter in a networked globalised world?" of the RC21 Conference held in Berlin in August 2013.
Keywords: City, Neighbourhoods, Mobility, Power relations, Social Networks, Family.
