This concluding chapter combines all the key findings under the four themes that have helped shape the analysis. These themes are the imaginations of place and space; the processes, practices, and politics of mobility; the engendering of particular forms of citizenship and subjectivity; and the changing perceptions and realities of state capacities and modes of regulation. The chapter argues that in each case, a historical narrative has allowed new insights to be developed and the continuities and changes in policy emphasis to be established and contextualised. The latter portion of the chapter has a discussion of the directions that future research on spatial policy and governance might take, and the key questions that could inform such research.

Keywords:   mobility, place and space, citizenship, subjectivity, state capacities, modes of regulation, policy emphasis, spatial policy
