The thematic issue explores new visions, facets and methods, practices, and tools for enabling smart engagement, in which smart technologies, infrastructure and governance, and inclusive planning processes may foster social inclusion, democratization, communications, and engagements with the urban residents. It also draws on research from various countries and cities across the world, responding to the need to understand how citizen engagement in smart city planning is practiced in different contexts, in particular, from transnational perspectives and evidence.
