6th International Conference Responsive Urbanism in Informal Areas (CfP)

Towards a Regional Agenda for Habitat III, 25-27 November, 2014, Cairo
‘Responsive Urbanism in Informal Areas’ is an international conference organized as a collaborative activity within the “Informal Urbanism Hub” of the HABITAT University Network Initiative (UNI), the Regional Office for Arab Countries, and Cairo University, aiming at reducing the gap between academia and practice. This conference will also feed in with the preparation of the National Urban Forum in 2015, and the HABITAT III in 2016.
Scholars, researchers, practitioners, and entrepreneurs are invited to deepen and broaden their mutual understanding of the mechanism of how these areas survived, and learn from their socio-economic resilience to practically respond to future needs and challenges. The conference offers a platform where experts will meet to exchange creative concepts, while integrating inter- disciplinary and inter-regional innovative approaches to the investigation of responsive informal urbanism.
