Can we, by drawing on the experience of different independent initiatives and associations in southeastern Europe, draft and collate typical development and qualification strategies for periods of urban transformation and post-conflict situations, and apply them to similar urban situations elsewhere? The publication presents different approaches to this topic and answers the question with yes! The publication on the Archis SEE Network specifically presents contributions from local initiatives throughout the region and looks forward to enhancing debate and action, with both local and international impact.
