ABOUT

Cities and Territories

This Group focuses its research on the territorial dimensions of contemporary socioeconomic, environmental and cultural change, analysing its complex restructuring mechanisms at the light of their spatiality, their territorial embeddedness and their spatial-morphological dimensions, and framing them in the scope of the promotion of multidimensional sustainable development processes.

The strategy for deepening the knowledge about the dynamics of change in spatial and territorial terms is based on the acknowledgment of the diversity of logics, processes and actors that produce and appropriate these processes. This is always done from a triple perspective, involving (i) the analysis of the "dynamics" themselves; (ii) the understanding of the regulation/planning issues and the aspects related to urban/territorial action and “policy-making"; and (iii), a "reflexive" consciousness of the ways these spaces are worked and studied.
