Collaborative for Inclusive Urbanism
'The role of the city is to provide the contexts that invite people to realize their social, personal, and economic aspirations. This invitation should be available to all. In the service of this goal, we carry out research and develop innovative ideas that lead to designs, policy recommendations, and experiments in practice.
CIU will work in cities worldwide, across the spectrum of development.
