Born out of a previous editorial experience (CRU – Critica della Razionalità Urbanistica), CRIOS is an international planning journal grounded on the tradition of critique and open to different contributions from urban studies and social sciences. Spatial orderings are complex devices, socio-spatial configurations as well as systems of norms, to be questioned in the historical and political perspective of contemporary urbanism. The journal’s main aim is dealing with challenges and conflicts in the city, from climate change to social inequalities, from informal settlements to global migrations, entangled in multiple scales and worldly contexts. It is a bi-lingual publication, Italian and English, bridging different research traditions and agendas.
The journal has 4 sections: Cross-critics, a space for critique as a theoretical lever to understand phenomena and modes of organization of contemporary human settlements; Beyond democratic deliberation, dedicated to democracy not just as rational decision-making but also as a practice driven by emotions and non conventional communication practices; Beyond tolerance, focused on spatial orderings as means to fight social exclusion and discrimination and promote hospitality; Beyond sustainability, focused on a different notion of habitability and environmental justice, made of settlements and infrastructures more resilient and metabolically efficient, and open to needs and demands of an ever-changing society
