    Abstract

    Over the last twenty years Glasgow's regeneration has been driven, not by strategy, but by projects. Ironically, given the length of time it has lacked any coherent strategy, it now seems likely to have two: one being produced by the Regeneration Alliance and a Joint Economic Strategy being drawn up by the City and the GDA. Leaving aside the obvious question as to why it has taken so long to draw up a strategy, it is now an opportune time to ask some fundamental questions about the content of such strategies and their purpose.
