Publications

The Business of Cities regularly produce strategy and thought leadership reports for publication in partnership with organisations around the world. So far in 2018 we have published the findings of major studies with JLL, the Urban Land Institute, the Property Council of Australia, among others. See below for our full list of publications.

The team has also recently published two books: A Short History of Global Cities (Brookings Press), and World Cities and Nation States (Wiley). A third book, entitled The Business of Cities: How Corporates and Capital are Reurbanising Our World (Routledge) is due for publication in 2019.
