Transforming cities : urban processes and structure
|Title:||Transforming cities : urban processes and structure||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5143||Date:||Jul-2013||Abstract:||This third volume of the International Geographical Union Young Scholars Committee focuses on the theme of transforming cities in a range of international contexts from Europe to Japan. The individual chapters focus on particular dimensions of that transformation – governance, social, cultural and economic - drawing on on-going research from all of the scholars included. Key concepts such as urban and regional development, agents of change, urban structure and regeneration are examined. While the focus is on particular case studies, we believe these issues are of importance more generally and hope they provide a resource and contribute to a better understanding of cities and urban processes in comparative perspective.||Type of material:||Book||Publisher:||IDEGA, Universidade De Santiago De Compostela, IGU Urban Geography Commission||Keywords:||Transformation; Governance; Social; Cultural; Economic||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
