Planning and Governance of Cities in Globalization - Volume IV

Professor Kathy Pain, Dr John Harrison

Kathy Pain, Professor of Real Estate Development and Director of Research for Real Estate & Planning, has co-edited Volume IV - Planning and Governance of Cities in Globalization – in the Routledge Major Work, Global Cities.

The four-volume collection edited by leading scholars in the Globalization and World Cities (GaWC) Research Network, addresses the striking consequences of globalization for the importance, prestige and resilience of contemporary cities. Cities have increasingly become recognized as the places where twenty-first century sustainability dilemmas can most successfully be resolved. It is cities and their functional regions, as opposed to nation states, which have come to the fore as the new spatial frame which must inform planning and governance to address future major global development challenges.

Drawing on a range of seminal and cutting-edge contributions, Planning and Governance of Cities in Globalization is an authoritative reference work which will assist policymakers, professionals, researchers and students in making sense of the vast body of literature in this important field.

More information about the book and how to purchase can be found on the publisher's website.
