The brazilian metropolitan regions in the context of the statute of metropolis: the importance of collaborative governance.

The current urban situation is represented by issues that go beyond municipal boundaries and by increasingly complex arrangements between cities. Part of this complexity arises from the polycentric character of metropolitan areas, since the current metropolises have undergone intensive processes of decentralization and productive restructuring, redistributing activities through an increasingly dense network of internationalized and functional interdependent cities. It can be seen, therefore, a growing interdependence between the various territorial levels of power (local, state, national and international) (KLINK, 2008; MAGALHÃES, 2008;
SOARES; SCHNEIDER, 2012).
