Welcome to Comparative Planning 2011

As in previous years this blog is open to students doing Planning 332 and 337. Topics will be posted weekly for students to comment on, and they can comment on blogs more than once if they wish. The objective is to investigate how different countries approach planning issues, and gain insights from others doing this course.
