*Call for Abstracts on "Urban Transformative Capacity: enabling
sustainability transitions in and through Cities"*

Against the backdrop of critical urban transformation challenges, this
special issue of ‘*Habitat International’ *aims to feature new conceptual
and empirical insights into the specific capacities required for
effectively enabling, initiating, steering and performing systemic urban
change for sustainability at local and global scales. Across contributions,
the objective is to illuminate how building such capacities translates into
urban (meta-) governance, policy and practice. Analyses from the global
North and South are requested that can enable new understandings of the
similarities and differences in terms of capacity for urban transformation.
Guiding questions are: What are constitutive and distinctive components of
urban transformative capacity, and how do they interact? How can such
capacity be consistently assessed and compared between world regions,
countries and places? How can this focus on capacity contribute to
purposefully shape urban transitions towards sustainability and resilience?
Extended abstracts of 500 words (plus key references) should be submitted
by 31.10.2016 to: m.wolfram at yonsei.ac.kr. More information:
