Transformative turn in planning
Deadline for submissions: 28 February 2019
Aims and scope
Urban transformations are of vital importance for the future of humanity and ecosystem Earth. New knowledge on the subject, dynamics and directions of urban change is dearly needed to shift current development trajectories in the global North and South towards sustainability.
We invite contributions from any disciplines addressing these issues. The journal seeks to deepen and broaden current understandings theoretically, empirically and methodologically. There is a need for novel perspectives, drawing on ontological and epistemological multiplicity, inter- and transdisciplinary approaches. We welcome comparative research designs, as well as innovative methods and techniques. Priority will be given to outcomes from science-practice co-production and co-design.
