This Special Issue focuses on relationships that exist between the quality of urban space and quality of life in the city. The latter is the product of many different factors, including the vital role of humans’ surrounding environment. This is why efforts designed to enhance urban dwellers’ subjective sense of wellbeing as well as yield better results in terms of objective indicators measuring various aspects of quality of life need to consider the issue of the quality of urban space. This issue may be examined on a variety of levels ranging from urban ecology, community development, architecture, political climate, and living conditions. Differences in living conditions often become a source of conflict between different social groups in the city and may affect the direction of intra-metropolitan migrations.
The quality of life of urban residents varies quite significantly and is defined differently depending on population characteristics such as age, gender, education, and marital status. The ethnic composition of a city may also affect variances in the subjective sense of wellbeing of urban residents as well as their subjective choice of place of residence in the geographic space of a city.
