Realising Just Cities - Learning Through Comparison 

Mistra Urban Futures Annual International Conference - 13-15 November 2017 - Kisumu, Kenya 

The rapidly growing number of people moving into cities all over the world also present a challenge of unprecedented size. It is crucial to find ways to make urbanisation a source for wealth, health and sustainability – which is shared. Mistra Urban Futures arranges yearly a conference about Realising Just Cities. 

This year’s conference focuses on learning through comparison. 


We are happy to announce the following keynotes:

Caroline Wanjiku Kihato, Visiting Researcher at the School of Architecture and Planning at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, and a Global Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars, Washington DC. Member of Mistra Urban Futures Board.
