Mistra Urban Futures Annual Report 2017

Realising Just Cities is an ambitious enterprise. To undertake such an initiative takes courage, an open mind and a strong sense of necessity. 

2017 was an important year within Mistra Urban Futures. Three key features highlighted by our Director, David Simon, were the launch of our comparative research projects, the expansion of our footprint in Sweden by a newly established node and new partnerships in India and Argentina. We also had the pleasure of welcoming four new members of our board under leadership of our newly appointed Chair, Anna Johansson, member of the Swedish Parliament and former Minister of Infrastructure.

We chose to follow the same format as last year and offer a web based Annual Report that allows you to not only read articles but also to watch interviews and other videos to learn about what we accomplished throughout the year. This year we have a printed version that is downloadable as a PDF as well.
