The conclusion to this special issue on the state of planning in Latin America provides a series of critical reflections based on the cross-comparative analysis of its seven contributions. Rather than summarising the results embedded in the survey, we allude to the thematic questions posed in the introduction by responding with thought-provoking, argument-based counter-questions as revealed by each of the section headings comprising this conclusion. To make a contribution towards positioning planning in Latin America as an emerging ?field? within the southern turn in planning, the following sections suggest a series of research trajectories whose underlying rationales build on the exposed perceptions around significant planning problems across the region.
