Welcome to EURA Conversations
EURA Conversations, a new digital space for international exchange between urban scholars, was created on this website in May 2020. The idea was to provide a democratic arena to share experiences, offer reflections and encourage dialogue within the EURA community not just about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cities, but also to consider how cities and communities in different countries and contexts have responded to this calamity.
As co-editors we have been more than pleased by the responses we have received. By summer 2022 some 46 EURA Conversation contributions, written by urban scholars from 20 different countries, had been posted – see below.
In October 2022 the EURA Conversation series entered a new era, one which aims to make the series more interactive. From that date each EURA Conversation now provides space for two voices: a leader setting out an idea, and a responder offering an initial reaction.
We have also made it much easier for readers to contribute their ideas to the international conversation via the comments section below each contribution.
We hope that this new format will be attractive to you. Please consider commenting on the opinions you see expressed below.
We also welcome any proposals that you may have for topics that you would like to see discussed in this international space. If you have an idea for a EURA Conversation piece, please read the Contribute to EURA Conversation page
We look forward to hearing from you.
