Published at: 31 December 2010

Volume 2 of Dialogues in Urban and Regional Planning has been released by Routledge in cooperation with the Global Planning Education Association Network. Featuring 12 urban planning research papers authored on six continents, originally in four languages, and nominated by nine planning school associations, this volume seeks to expand access to regional planning scholarship.  The papers discuss planning issues of economy and urban place; environment and conservation of heritage; planning processes and the nature of decision making; the development of planning  ideas; transport; and gender; each from a different planning scholarship perspective.  The editor's introduction proposes directions to overcome regional isolation in planning research.
