2020 Conference Oslo

The website for the EURA Confernece 2020 in Oslo is online.

Next year’s EURA conference “Contradictions Shaping Urban Futures” will be held in the Norwegian capital 15th to 17th June 2020. We look forward to seeing you!

At a time when an increasing share of the global population is living in urban areas, there is a need to re-examine the role(s), which cities take in coping with today’s challenges and contradictions.

The EURA conference in Oslo 2020 takes as its inspiration Robert A. Beauregard’s book (2018) ‘Cities in the urban age’, as well as protests in European cities where groups like the “gilets jaunes” take to the streets to make their voice heard. Both the book and the protests underline that urban policies matter, have impact beyond the urban sphere and are worth fighting over.
