Manchester Urban Institute

International collaborations

We contribute to The University of Manchester’s internationalisation agenda in a variety of ways. Our researchers:

  • study a world of cities in order to make a contribution to the advancement of more global urban studies.
  • partner with business, civil society, local government, and third sector organisations in cities to co-produce knowledge.
  • present their findings at conferences, seminars and workshops in cities around the world.
  • lead on projects with a number of partner academic organisations from around the world.
  • write their work with co-authors from cities around the world.
  • come from cities around the world to work together at the Manchester Urban Institute (MUI).

Many of our largest research projects are collaborative efforts with partner academic and non-academic organisations, with the MUI a base from which to nurture and to support these associations and relationships. Examples include:

We also have a small number of strategic partners with whom researchers have longer-standing relationships, involving working across multiple research projects:

  • Asian Urbanisms, National University of Singapore
  • Institute of Future Cities, the Chinese University of Hong Kong
  • The City Institute, York University
  • The School of Cities, University of Toronto
  • Urban Theory Lab, Harvard University

We are also working with international partners to host the Summer Institute in Urban Studies which, in 2018, is hosted at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Plans are already in progress to hold the 2020 Summer Institute in North America.
