The AESOP thematic group on ETHICS, VALUES AND PLANNING has been recently renovated.

After several years of excellent work and passionate discussions, we would like to thank Claudia Basta and all the other members for their active contribution. From now on, we (Stefano Cozzolino and Arend Jonkman) have the pleasure and the responsibility to trigger fruitful interactions within our community which, we hope, can be joined by many new members.


The EVP's first colloquium is scheduled on Wednesday, February 24th, from 5 to 6 pm (Central European Time). The discussion/conversation will start from a recently published comment in Planning Theory titled “If neoliberalism is everything, maybe it is nothing” written by Edwin Buitelaar.
