The role of national and international associations of planning schools in the promotion of planning education has attracted increasing interest globally over the past few years. This paper provides a history concerning the involvement of the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP) in planning education and discusses recent deliberations and decisions on the long-standing issue of AESOP’s role in promoting quality in planning education across member schools. The AESOP Quality Recognition (QR) Programme today is to be understood as a peer-to-peer service whose role is to support the development and enhancement of planning programmes of member schools through quality recognition, sharing and mutual learning.
