Most of human beings now live in cities. Economy, Housing, Justice or Environment become urban issues. This rise of urban matters changes political agendas and affects previous economic, spatial or institutional logics.

Sciences Po has developed an entire program on urban studies, Sciences Po Cities, with a research program, two masters and the Chaire Ville.

Sciences Po 'Chaire Ville' aims at three goals:

  • Promoting urban studies through deep and long term partnership with public and private institutions.
  • Take part actively to the public debates dealing with urban issues.
  • Reassess the global scale of urban issues through dedicated partnerships and contributions.

Dominique Lorrain and Frederic Gilli head the Chaire Ville.
