About UAR
UAR is an outlet for theoretically and empirically grounded research on the politics, governance, and public policies of urban and regional settings throughout the world. We welcome research employing any methodological approach and comparative analyses are of particular interest. Research focused on specific settings, events, or policies must have some general theoretical significance.
UAR welcomes papers on any topics relevant to the urban themes of politics, governance, and public policy. Common topics in recent years include: urban policy; urban economic development; residential and community development; governance and service delivery; comparative/international urban research; and social, spatial, and cultural dynamics.
