The sub-theme welcomes submissions of high-quality research on cities as arenas of and actors in organizing investigated from the perspectives of organization studies, management, sociology, geography, and political science, among others.

This research will likely analyze processes, such as branding, collaborating, competing, learning, participating, and coordinating across sectors.
