About this book

In this book an international group of authors reflects mechanisms of the cultural and social construction of landscapes. International migration and global exchange are associated with a multitude of different cultural meanings of landscapes. The logics of multi-cultural perceptions and meanings of landscape call for trans-disciplinary research, and for guidance on addressing culturally sensitive issues and inclusion in practical planning.
