This book provides a conceptual framework for understanding the inclusive city. It clarifies the concept, dimensions and tensions of social and economic inclusion and outlines different forms of exclusion to which inclusion may be an antidote. The authors argue that as inclusion ...involves a range of inter-group and intra-group tensions, the unifying role of local government is crucial in making inclusion a reality for all, as is also the adoption of an inclusive and collaborative governance style. The book emphasizes the need to shift from citizens' rights to value creation, thus building a connection with urban economic development. It demonstrates that inclusion is an opportunity to widen the local resource base, create collaborative synergies, and improve conditions for entrepreneurship, which are conducive to the creation of shared urban prosperity. The book presents illustrative cases of inclusive urban prosperity from prominent cities in Europe and North America together with a few advanced cities in different parts of Asia. It will be a valuable resource for researchers, students and practitioners working in all areas of urban studies and sustainability.

peoples in the Pacific.
The New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference has asked Caritas Aotearoa New
Zealand to make the peoples of Oceania a priority in our work, and environmental
justice is one of five key strategic goals in the Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand 2013-2017
Our Pacific regional strategy recognises that climate change and environmental
degradation pose a severe threat to Pacific livelihoods and survival. Caritas aims to work

displaced people. Our aims include increasing community awareness of environmental
issues and climate change in Aotearoa New Zealand and Oceania, promoting
sustainability of natural resources, and undertaking advocacy to address structural
