Looking at the lessons we can learn from international research in urban and regional planning, this book explores the challenges in using cross-country studies. The contributors address how to approach researching planning in other countries, and how to then diffuse the planning information. Key topics include:

  • comparable urban data, and how to use it
  • working with international agencies
  • methodological issues in cross-country research
  • translating theory into practice

Case studies include researching new towns in France and Poland, and problems doing empirical work in Eastern Europe.
