Michael Storper du programme Cities Are Back In Town, Charles van Marrewijk et Frank G. van Oort ont publié dans le Journal of Regional Sciences (février 2012, vol. 52, n°1) un numéro collectif sur « Processes of Urban Change in Urban Systems« .


« The twenty-first century will be one of intensified urbanization, on a scale never before experienced. How do urban systems and individual cities change and develop? The social sciences have many different approaches to analyzing the economic, social, and spatial dimensions of urban change. We inventory some of these approaches and their implications for public policy toward cities, urban change, and economic development. »
