Social Policies & the Urban Fabric
Social Policies & the Urban Fabric in Amsterdam is a summer programme created and run by the Summer Programmes Office of the Graduate School of Social Sciences at the University of Amsterdam.
How are policy making efforts aimed at creating inclusive, just, safe and lively cities projected onto the urban landscape? This undergraduate summer programme challenges students to explore the dialectics between a variety of social policies and the planning, design and experience of Amsterdam.
The interdisciplinary programme focuses on how social policies impact the city on the ground, taking Amsterdam and its public spaces, neighborhoods and new urban developments as an illustrative case. Over the course of three weeks, a wide range of subjects from social housing and gentrification to contested public space and bottom-up development will be addressed by various guest lecturers and educational site visits.
