Volume two

Following an open call for paper, the second volume of plaNext invited contributions from researchers and practitioners in planning and other related fields of research. All contributions went through open peer-review process before they were included in this volume. Unlike volume one, Cities that Talk, which was dedicated to the specific theme urban resistance and planning, the editorial board of plaNext selected the contributions to volume two as new ideas and perspectives on planning.
