Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the challenges that “the triumph of the city” entails for urban policy, planning and research. The paper contains a brief overviews of factors behind the triumph of the city, − for instance, whether it can be argued that we are entering a post-urban world, − the challenges that metropolitan regions’ and megacities’ internal relationships, governance and external relationships are facing, and the challenges for policy, planning and research. A conclusion is that planning and policy have good experience in handling the built environment, but that the real challenge for “the post-urban world” is to contribute to improved social environments by building a social capital that secures urban social cohesion.
