Resulting from a workshop organized by the Center for International Studies at MIT on urban planning and socio-economic reconstruction in post-war Lebanon, this work brings together established professors; young scholars; architects; town planners; and entrepeneurs to explore the problems of and prospects for urban planning and to consider visions and strategies for the reconstruction of Lebanon after 16 years of civil war. The volume engages in multi-layered discussion of spatial, socio-economic and cultural rehabilitation of a fractured social order in the throes of post-war reconstruction. The work should be of value to those with a special interest in Lebanon; urban planning; architectural design; policy-making; and development studies, with regard to reconstruction and spatial or urban rehabilitation of post-war societies.
