The Journal of Public Space

ISSN 2206-9658

The Journal of Public Space is a joint research project developed by City Space Architecture, a non-profit organization based in Italy, and the Queensland University of Technology, based in Australia, in partnership with UN Habitatthe United Nations Programme for Cities and Human Settlements.
The Journal of Public Space is the first, international, interdisciplinary, academic, open access journal entirely dedicated to public space. It speaks different languages and is open to embrace diversity, inconvenient dialogues and untold stories, from multidisciplinary fields and all countries, especially from those that usually do not have voice, overcoming the Western-oriented approach that is leading the current discourse.
As a proper public space, The Journal of Public Space is free, accessible and inclusive, providing a platform for emerging and consolidated researchers; it is intended to foster research, showcase best practices and inform discussion about the more and more important issues related to public spaces in our changing and evolving societies.

The Journal of Public Space already attracted a number of international distinguished scholars all over the world, whose aim is to contribute to the discussion and expand current scholarship on public space.
