Introduction

Research Committee 21 (RC21) on Sociology of Urban and Regional Development of the International Sociological Association was established in 1970 to promote theory and research in the sociology of urban and regional development, and - in so doing - create an international community of scholars who will advance the field.

At a time when cities, towns, and regions, and the world more broadly, are undergoing profound change, these international links are of critical importance for promoting and advancing scholarship. Web pages, such as this, and e-mail, provide mechanisms for more easily enabling and maintaining these contacts.

Through this page, we wish to provide as much information as possible, both to RC21 members and non members, including providing links to other sites of interest.

At the moment, RC21 shares a bulletin board - a listserver - with the American Sociological Association’s Community and Urban Section.
