Abstract: In this article, the complex set of driving factors and mechanisms that explain the evolution of territorial governance in Flanders in economic and spatial policy are discussed. A mix of both exogenous and endogenous trends has led to an increased focus on the sub-regional arena and to an administrative and political jungle, creating opportunities for "smart" local actors. The result is a broadened, strengthened, more professional "political localism" - in part due to innovation in planning - that may potentially favour innovation at the local level, on a background of relatively stable and unaltered political routines at the central level.
