This interdisciplinary volume explores the evaluation of theory-practice and growth-conservation interactions in planning. Over the past years traditional evaluation methods have disregarded various aspects in decision-making, such as uncertain value conflicts, ecological imperative use of non-expert knowledge, and citizen participation. This volume presents an incentive to examine the evaluation methods used by means of a number of chapters on case studies. Audience: This book will be of interest to scientists, researchers and practitioners in urban, regional and strategic planning, urban and social history, social geography, public administration and policy sciences.
