The Cities' Initiatives

The Metropolis Project Team recently launched the Cities Initiative. The objective of the Cities Initiative is to increase the participation of municipalities in Metropolis and to foster the Project's expertise within a municipal setting. While the context of Metropolis research has always been largely urban, the Cities Initiatives aimsfor a more effetive municipal engagement in Metropolis and to enhance the relevance of the research for municipal governments. Specific measures include developing this Cities Corner Metropolis Web site, identifying urban policy-research questions and organizing events that engage municipalities.
