Abstract

This book has sought to make a critical view of public governance in smart cities. In this section, a trip across all chapters included in the book is performed, highlighting the main results of the research undertaken in each one of them. All these chapters make high-quality contributions into smart cities’ research and set the base on which future developments on smart cities’ studies could be built. In general, smart cities’ development seem to be positive for citizen engagement and for efficiency in public sector tasks, but the development of smart cities needs to consider some main internal and external challenges that have been identified in the empirical studies included in the book, such as smart people or social, political, and cultural perspectives of smart initiatives.
