Projections 8: Justice, Equity, and Sustainability

Projections is the peer-reviewed MIT Journal of Planning that focuses on the most innovative and cutting-edge ideas and practices in planning. Each issue is devoted to a specific area of interest to planning scholars and professionals. It aims at publishing high quality research papers, reflective studies, and case studies on the specific theme of each issue.

Emerging research and practice recognizes that sustainable communities need to be built on a foundation of justice and equity. Environmental and social degradation are closely coupled to power inequity, thus compelling academics, researchers, and practitioners to conceptualize and build sustainable communities and places with these essential elements in mind. Within and between rural and urban communities and places, in developed and developing nations, achieving sustainability demands putting equity rights at the center of planning and implementation.

Volume 8 Editors: Isabelle Anguelovski, Anna Brand, Rachel Healy

Volume 8 of Projections brings together articles from academics and practitioners to theorize, critically reflect on past experiences, and examine the intersection of justice and sustainability as a framework for planning and action. The volume includes a combination of case studies, theoretical and critical analyses, research and policy briefs, and design and photographic conceptualizations.
