We are pleased to announce that our project will be presented during the European Urban Research Association Conference in Warsaw. The focus of the conference revolves around the concept of urban networks and multi-scalar spaces. It enables us to think about cities as political agents shaping their presence on the global political and economic arena. It also provides scope for treating inner urban politics and policies as signs of downscaling.
Our paper will be part of a wider global challenges theme. The theme addresses the implications arising from conceptualising cities as nodes in a global network; increasingly vulnerable to global challenges related to environmental changes, demographic dynamics, and infrastructure failures. Our paper demonstrates a case study of an interrelated networked-structure developed in Bristol as a way to address global issues of urban resilience on a local scale.
