July 2018

IPM CPD is back!

The purpose of CPD (continuing professional development) is to help members develop their skills as professionals in the sector.  All professional bodies expect their members to keep their knowledge and skills up to date - and we are no exception. However, we want CPD to be relevant and meaningful.  This month the focus of CPD is on participatory urban development. 

IPM Director Professor Ares Kalandides has recently published an article that deals with two main issues relating to this topic. Firstly, he proposes a methodological framework through which urban policies can be assessed. Secondly, he presents a case study that applies the framework, delivering an analysis of the policy intentions of the current Berlin administration.

Kalandides, A. (2018) “Citizen participation: towards a framework for policy assessment”, Journal of Place Management and Development, 11(2), pp.152-164.
