This special session provides comparative perspectives on urban inequality trends in different world regions. It examines patterns, structures, and dynamics of socio-economic and spatial inequalities in urban context. The premise is that inequality in cities has critical spatial dimensions: inequality is at once conditioned by and expressed in spatial context. This special session will examine spatial and temporal dimensions of socio-economic inequality, analyze the significance of urban context for inequality, and provide insights for urban planners and administrators to balance efficiency, equity and environment. We welcome articles that address questions such as the following:
• What is the nature of inequality trends in the city/cities in question? What are the temporal/spatial dynamics?
• What is the explanation for these inequality trends and, specifically, how do they relate to (a) urbanization trends, (b) the urban political economy of these cities, and (c) local/national urban policies?
• How is urban inequality manifested in residential segregation, spatial mismatch, housing inequality, digital divide, environmental injustice, and in general spatial inequality?
• What are the theoretical and policy implications of the research?
