Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary.

This insightful Research Agenda examines the multidimensional relationships between heritage planning and pressing current societal challenges around climate, identity and development. Mapping future avenues for the field, it suggests new approaches to executing, studying and reflecting on heritage planning.

Expert international contributors raise key questions that challenge practice and research to push for structural and institutional change. The book highlights the transformative potential of heritage planning and the responsibilities that come with such potential. Chapters explore central topics including heritage-led regeneration, cultural landscape management, food, music and tourism, using social, participatory and digital research methods. They are contextualised with questions around contestation and politization, and the changing conceptualisations of heritage planning.

Spanning the domains of theoretical and empirical insights, from academic outlooks to professional challenges, this Research Agenda will be a vital resource for academics and students of urban and human geography, heritage studies, planning, urban design and architecture. Its examination of heritage planning practices will also be useful for policy makers and professionals working in the heritage planning field.
Critical Acclaim
‘A Research Agenda for Heritage Planning offers an ambitious reflection on the complex articulation of research, practice and policy that inform the uses of heritage in Europe today. Editors Eva Stegmeijer and Loes Veldpaus gather a coherent, wide-ranging selection of cases, successfully stressing heritage’s decisive role in solving Europe's current identity, climate and developmental challenges. As an extensive recount of the latest research advancements, this book will exceed the expectations of those exploring the frontiers of heritage, and enlighten readers about the profound transcendence of its planning in contemporary societies.’
– Plácido González Martínez, Tongji University, China

‘This edited volume by Stegmeijer and Veldpaus provides a ground-breaking Research Agenda for heritage planning and would be useful not only for practitioners, but also for academics, students and politicians.’
