“Social Goals,” a monograph book chapter by Sungduck Lee, assistant professor of landscape architecture, has been published in A Research Agenda for New Urbanism (Elgar Research Agendas, September 2019), edited by Emily Talen. The chapter explores the measurable indicators of social sustainability that can be used to help researchers and practitioners assess the social aspects of New Urbanism. In it, Lee proposes an evaluative framework of the social goals embedded in the New Urbanism Charter — community, social equity and the common good — that researchers can use to operationalize and quantify social effects.
