The most recent issue of the Journal of Urban Affairs, co-edited by Nuno F. da Cruz, Philipp Rode and Michael McQuarrie is now open to free access. This special issue, entitled New Urban Governance, shows that engaging with modern-day urban governance study and practice will require an interdisciplinary and mostly empirical research agenda from diverse global contexts. By presenting a set of articles that explore the relationships between institutional settings, national urban policies, and city-specific reforms and changes while also offering perspectives on current governance challenges and future opportunities in Brazil, China, Europe, India, and South Africa, this special issue lays an important foundation for that agenda. The article is an output from LSE Cities’ New Urban Governance research project.
