The Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy is a tool for lawyers, planners, policy-makers and scholars working on metropolitan growth issues and interested in learning more about how cities around the world tackle the same issues. Articles focus on issues such as equitable and sustainable development; taxation and infrastructure finance; social mix, affordable housing, and housing finance; historic preservation; and climate change, environmental law and green space preservation.
The third volume features articles resulting from our Study Space Program held in Singapore in June 2018. Study Space is an annual weeklong workshop that brings together scholars and practitioners from around the world to solve critical issues facing metropolitan regions. It is held in a different city every year, providing an opportunity for its participants to engage in comparative research and networking around the globe. We hope that you find this journal informative and become interested in our Study Space Program, and publishing your own work in our journal.
