Leading the Inclusive City: Place-Based Innovation for a Bounded Planet

Cities are often seen as helpless victims in a global flow of events and many view growing inequality in cities as inevitable. In Leading the Inclusive City Robin Hambleton rejects this gloomy prognosis arguing that imaginative place-based leadership and inspirational city leaders can enable citizens to shape the urban future in accordance with progressive values - advancing social justice, promoting care for the environment and bolstering community empowerment. Part of the build up programme to the Bristol 2015 Festival of the Future City.
