This Big Blue Book is an initiative that provides to the wider public an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with 70 university partners of Habitat UNI. The Book showcases these universities’ achievements in research and education and depicts the urban studies that being undertaken. This mapping of the academic and research activities in the field of cities and urban studies provides a fresh look into the knowledge that Universities and Research Centres are generating in a more holistic and integrated manner. Regardless of the location of the research centre, this Book shows that urban issues and challenges require collective efforts. Ensuring that no one and no place is left behind should be each stakeholder’s goal.
