Publications

The co-creation approach of Mistra Urban Futures forms the basis for the publications of the Centre, with academic as well as practitioner- and policy-oriented reports, papers, and briefs.

A biblio- and webometric study was conducted by Chalmers Library during 2014 in preparation for the mid-term evaluation of Mistra Urban Futures in 2015. Download the study

  • Ett nytt sätt att tänka på hållbara städer
    Hållbar urbanisering har blivit ett viktigt ämne i debatten, inom forskningen och på politiska agendor de senaste åren. Det finns många orsaker till detta, och vilka som väger tyngst skiljer sig mellan länder och regioner. Bland de viktigaste är dock insikten om konsekvenserna av en snabb urbanisering i länder som Kina, Indien och andra låg- och medelinkomstländer med historiskt låga urbaniseringsnivåer. Mycket av dessa länders urbanisering följer de ohållbara och resurskrävande mönster som höginkomstländerna har utvecklats efter. Den trenden förstärks också av en större global rörlighet, globaliseringen av arkitekt- och stadsplaneringskonsulter och byggföretag samt av den spridningskraft som medierna och den nya informations- och kommunikationstekniken har.

  • Social hållbarhet ur ett samhällsplaneringsperspektiv - en kunskapsöversikt
    This knowledge overview on social sustainability from an urban planning perspective has been developed as a result of a Mistra Urban Futues project. The project gathered a large number of actors from research and practice, from local and regional level, as well as from both small and large municipalities. All actors had a common desire to create a greater understanding of what social sustainability might mean in relation to urban planning. The ambition is that the resulting report will help researchers to gain a better understanding of the practical challenges and needs regarding social sustainability. Also, that practitioners get a wider theoretical reference framework that they can use as a basis for their work. In the report it is concluded that social sustainability in urban planning has different meanings in different contexts. A number of approaches on social sustainability in relation to urban planning are presented, to provide guidance and urge for reflection. The report also illustrates how social planning can contribute to (and hinder) social sustainability in different ways. It is emphasized that social sustainability is not a static state that can be achieved once and for all, but rather an ongoing process in which urban planning can play an important role. The report also provides a number of interesting examples of how actors within the framework of Swedish urban planning can address issues of social sustainability. Finally, a number of identified knowledge gaps are highlighted, as guidance for continued development work and research initiatives.
