Ricky Burdett, Professor of Urban Studies and Director of LSE Cities, has published an article on Inequality and Urban Development in Spain’s Revista de Libros.
A new working paper on Integrating national policies to deliver compact, connected cities: a horizon scan into transport and housing has been released by the Coalition for Urban Transitions. The paper, authored by LSE Cities and the OECD, explores the ways in which urban policy sectors are integrated—or fragmented—in ten case study countries: China, Colombia, Ethiopia, Germany, India, Mexico, Nigeria, South Africa, United Kingdom and the United States. A central finding is that a lack of coordination between national economic policy, and housing and transport policy, undermines both the economic potential and environmental sustainability of cities.
Philipp Rode, Executive Director of LSE Cities, will speak on Frontiers of City Governance on 7 December 2017 at the Oskar von Miller Forum in Munich. Rode will draw insights from the Centre’s ongoing research into New Urban Governance. The forum is an educational initiative of the Bavarian construction industry for engineers in the building sector.
