Abstract and Keywords

This article discusses emerging themes considered as the potential core for future urban research agendas that would be enriched by further comparative work. These include the depoliticization of poverty, the reconfiguration of identity-based politics, the urban politics of sustainability, and the weakness of regional institutional building. In addition to these substantive themes, there is a consistent interest in enhancing the theories and methods available to address these new realities. These include the consensus about the need to find alternative lenses for comparative research, and the debates concerning the viability of regime theory for comparative research and the utility of governance approaches.

Keywords: urban research, poverty, identity-based politics, urban politics, sustainability, regional institutional building, comparative research, regime theory, governance approaches
