‘New Urban Governance: Urban complexity and institutional capacities of cities’ is a new two-year LSE Cities research project co-funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to examine multiple aspects of municipal planning, management, and governance.
LSE Cities is working and expanding on parallel yet intersecting strands of research that cover the following areas:
Cities, Space and Society: urban culture and design; economic development and inclusion; cities, health and well-being
Cities and the Environment: mobility and city access; urban form and resource efficiency; city design and technology
Urban Governance: architecture and democracy; metropolitan and regional cohesion; mega-projects, infrastructure and urban change
