Rodrigo Firmino is an Associate Professor in Urban Management at the Pontifical Catholic University (PUCPR) in Curitiba, Brazil, and a CNPq (Brazil’s National Council for Scientific and Technological Development) Research Fellow.

Simin Davoudi, Professor of Environmental Policy & Planning at School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, and Associate Director of the Institute for Sustainability at Newcastle University will critically review different methodologies that have been employed to define the city-region before focusing on the prevailing conception of the city-region as a functional economic space and the dominant top-down methodology which is used for defining its boundaries.
