FR7.15.07 Comparative Urban Research: Opportunities and Challenges

This roundtable will engage in discussions on the opportunities and challenges that exist in conducting comparative urban research. From Paris to New York, Rio to New Delhi, Shanghai to Istanbul, global cities around the world experience some similar urban trajectories that warrant systematic examination. Comparative research has the potential of generating general patterns and advancing urban theories but also face challenges as the cities vary in their geographic location, political institutions, and socioeconomic traits. We invite researchers who conduct urban research in a comparative context to exchange ideas in this field.
