Abstract

In a changing and globalizing world, planning theory is core to understanding how planning and its practices both function and evolve. As illustrated in this book, planning and its many roles have changed profoundly over the recent decades; so have the theories, both critical and explanatory, about its practices, values and knowledges. In the context of these changes, and to contribute to the development of planning education and research, this handbook seeks to identify and introduce the cutting edge, and the new emerging trajectories, of contemporary planning theory. This will provide the reader with key insights into not just contemporary planning thought, but potential future directions of both planning theory and planning as a whole.
