Amsterdam and Spaces & Flows
Now in its fourth year, the Spaces and Flows Conference will be hosted in partnership with the Centre for Urban Studies at the University of Amsterdam. The Centre for Urban Studies is one of 15 designated Research Priority Areas of the University of Amsterdam and brings together urban scholars in sociology, geography, planning, political science, economics, development studies and other disciplines, creating one multidisciplinary program. Under the direction of Prof. dr. Jan Nijman, the Centre supports existing urban research programs and initiates collaborative projects across disciplines.
We hope you will be able to join us in Amsterdam for this important discussion, and we look forward to receiving your proposal!
