Smart City Standardization: International and National Implementations contains numerous existing standards that have emerged for smart cities and helps readers understanding their complex processes. It presents the current state of smart city standards at both international and national levels, and it demonstrates how smart city innovation is clarified via standardization, as well as how competitive solutions compromise under international and national negotiations in standardization bodies. It helps practitioners and theorists understand the context and available solutions using a unique case study approach. The book starts with international and supranational levels and proceeds with the most important national approaches. It addresses the problem of smart city standardization and aims to provide answers to the crucial questions: 1. What is the purpose of standardization in smart cities? 2. How is smart city standardization established, and by whom? 3. Which standards exist for smart cities? 4. How do national standards transform international recommendations into smaller scale norms? Moreover, the standardization ecosystem is depicted, and the existing international standards are briefly explained. Finally, the interrelation between international and national standardization helps readers understand how the standardization is brought from high-level policymaking to national practices. These standards both clarify the smart city domain, and more importantly aim to homogenize the emerging intelligent solutions that cover the broad smart city scope, ranging from transportation and buildings, to waste, water, and energy. This book is a valuable resource for researchers, policymakers and other practitioners who need to understand how they can use smart city stands to support their communities to strengthen city resilience, as well as instructors of courses in urban studies, ICT, security, public health, engineering, public administration and business administration, and more, to understand the smart city context from practical examples and theoretical considerations.
