With the global expansion of urbanization there is a need to ensure that cities develop in a way that allows all residents to benefit from urban life. This research review considers a collection of classic and more recent papers that provide insight into the problems encountered in urbanization and the ways in which planning has evolved to meet the resultant challenges. It is broad in its coverage, and the papers discussed include both theoretical and applied contributions as well as those which cover urban planning issues in the developing and developed world.
