Urban Transformation and ‘New Style’ Urbanisation in China

9 – 12 July 2018, University of Glasgow

The 2018 International Conference on Urban Development will bring together researchers from urban studies, geography, sociology, political science, urban planning, urban management and public policy as well as China studies, from all over the world, to share research findings on the process of urban transformation. It will provide a platform to explore the multiple dimensions of urban development in China, and the special features of recent development and their implications for existing theories. There will also be the opportunity for young researchers to share their experiences on studying and researching Chinese cities.

Following previous conferences in Cardiff, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and London, the conference will be held in Glasgow in 2018. Post-conference field trips will be organised to allow delegates to explore the city and Scotland.
