On September 8th, Professor Hans Mastop took his official retirement during a farewell reception at the Faculty of Management Science at Radboud University, Nijmegen. Hans Mastop is a greatly admired colleague in the planning field. His work focuses on strategic spatial planning and implementation of strategies; a research interest, which he most likely benefited from while being the Dean of Faculty, during two office periods. As President of AESOP, between 2000 and 2002, Hans Mastop used two other interests, internationalization and young academics, to initiate and support the YA network in AESOP.
During the event, former AESOP President Peter Ache spoke on behalf of AESOP and thanked Hans Mastop for his contributions to the association.
Our President, Anna Geppert, is happy to address Hans our warmest thanks for his meaningful contributions to the development of our association. The AESOP community wishes you many fulfillments in this new time of your life!

The Habitat III Conference aims to adopt a New Urban Agenda (NUA)—an action-oriented document which will set global standards of achievement in sustainable urban development, rethinking the way we build, manage, and live in cities through cooperation with committed partners, relevant stakeholders, and urban actors at all levels of government as well as the private sector.
AESOP has been contributing to the debates on the New Urban Agenda and, as a result, prepared this Position Paper which focuses on the role that research and academia and, in particular, our planning schools should play in the implementation phase of the NUA, through capacity building, knowledge production, and research that informs policymaking, as well as data collection and analysis for the subsquent monitoring phases.
The ExCo would like to thank our colleague Prof. Ela Babalik Sutcliffe for leading the preparation of this document.
