New book chapters on planning policy transfer by Dominic Stead and Dorina Pojani

The new book “Knowledge, Policymaking and Learning for European Cities and Regions
From Research to Practice” (Edward Elgar Pub., 2018, N. Dotti, ed.), provides theories, experiences, reflections and future directions for social scientists who wish to engage with policy-oriented research in cities and regions.

The ‘policy learning’ perspective is comprehensively discussed, focusing on actors promoting ‘policy knowledge’ and interaction among different stakeholders. The book also aims to provide practical insights for policy-makers and practitioners interested in research-based approaches to cities and regions.

Dr Stead and Dr Pojani have contributed chapters 4 and 9:

  • Learning across cities and regions: The limits to transferring “best practice”
  • Dutch experiences of policy mobility in urban planning
