The Final Jury brings the 2010-2011 edition of this masters course to a close, an event in which students will present their thesis projects and which we hope will serve as a platform for debate between students and scholars.

We trust the research carried out by this group of 14 students within the framework of the Master of International Cooperation at ESARQ-UIC, raises a diversity of pressing contemporary issues and has the potential to become a valuable contribution to the following fields of study: community “agency” in urban regeneration processes in human settlements, reconstruction process of communities affected by catastrophes, risk reduction, role of urban planning and design, and social housing and cultural heritage.

The Final Jury is open to the public, so please join us for some interesting discussions and to support the work of our students!
