While there has been much research on the existing EU countries urban policies, as yet, there is very little written in English on the new EU countries cities and their plans for urban development. This volume brings together case studies from Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Cyprus and Malta to provide a comprehensive overview of these countries urban policies. It also compares these policies with those of the existing countries and discusses possible sytheses. It examines each countrys national urban policy, as well as the position, problems and perspectives of their cities. In doing so, it provides new insights not only for the new EU countries, but also for the existing ones.
