    Sociologist, Columbia University, New York

    Saskia Sassen´s contributions to contemporary sociology include coining the term ‘global city’, which is now used wordwide. This Dutch expert believes that control and management of the world economy is in the hands of the major cities, where the economic and financial power and telecommunications facilities are concentrated. Her research also focuses on problems in these cities, such as the impoverishment of the middle classes and difficulties in accessing telecommunications, giving rise to social inequalities and segregation.
