Oxford Future of Cities Programme

Our understanding of the urban, whether in theory or practice, stands at a turning point. Cities over the world face complex and rapidly evolving challenges.

Addressing these challenges requires ingenuity and versatility, whether in policy-making, investment decisions or everyday livelihoods.

The Oxford Programme for the Future of Cities seeks to re-think the city, in theory and practice, as a flexible and evolving space that better responds to contemporary urban challenges.
