The challenges rapid urbanisation encompasses are manifold, so are the efforts
addressing sustainable and inclusive development frameworks. „Reclaiming Public
Space through Intercultural Dialogue“ is an intercultural and interdisciplinary
initiative, which focuses on how social and spatial segregation can be overcome
in metropolitan areas. Through joint research and teaching activities in the
cities of Dortmund and Amman, three comprehensive topics emerged: urban
transformation and the role of public space; social and cultural dimensions of
cities; and nature-based planning approaches. The book compiles contributions to
these topics from researchers, practitioners, and students, which were presented
in an international conference held at the German Jordanian University in Madaba,
Jordan, in November 2017.
