Association for Urban Transition: research and action for transparent and sustainable urban development

General Information

FOCUS:

Promotes dialogue and the transparency of urban development policy-making. Facilitates communication among the urban actors as an interface between public administration and citizens. Promotes an interdisciplinary approach to urban development employing networks of national and international professional organisations. Fosters civic spirit among residents by encouraging a sense of attachment to a community. Promotes relationships with academia in order to conduct urban studies and research, as well as to participate in scholarly debate.



APPROACH:

Research and initiatives in urban and community development issues with a focus on historical centres, large-scale socialist housing estates, public space and the question of memory in urban space, poverty-stricken neighbourhoods, and integration of minorities, e.g., of Romani. Small interdisciplinary teams carry out the projects. Another focus involves establishing connections with economists open to atypical topics, such as the economy of poverty or the economy of transition in the areas with large-scale blocks of flats.
