Invitation and call for papers
The 7th Nordic Planning Research Symposium PLANNORD
August 20th-22nd, 2015, at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm

The biannual PLANNORD symposium this year is arranged by the Division of Urban and Regional Studies at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. PLANNORD is a platform for networking and exchange of knowledge concerning spatial planning. It is an informal forum that primarily operates in a Nordic context. It is comprised by planning academics and practitioners who gather to discuss changes in planning activities and experiences.

Crisis in planning/planning in crisis - a Nordic perspective
How can we understand the current state for spatial planning in the Nordic countries? Is planning and its institutions contested, or are we rather witnessing a revival?

The situation might be described as dual - on the one hand we can find accusations of planning as ineffective, inappropriate to meet contemporary challenges and needs, invalid in a market driven society and thus as an institution with low legitimacy; on the other hand as essential and preventive in meeting problems caused by climate change, urbanisation, segregation or insufficient transport systems. It is also sometimes considered as a driver of growth and sustainable development. Planning could thus be seen both as causing the problem and as the solution to the problem.

Currently we can detect partly different trends in the Nordic countries, due to changes in policies, legal systems and practice. Can we talk about Nordic planning as something with common conditions and interests?

We welcome papers from researchers, practitioners and PhD-students, elaborating on the overall theme of the symposium with special focus on the impact the on-going development may have on planning research, education, practice or/and the role of planner in a Nordic context.
