We are a Faculty about the city and for the city.
The Faculty of Urban and Regional Development integrates a wide range of the HSE University’s competencies (economics, social science, law, management and administration, etc.) in the context of urban development and management.
From our perspective Urban Studies and Planning is a universal framework for multiple interpretations of the term ‘city’. Urban Studies and Planning is based on a comprehensive study of the ‘urban lifestyle’ phenomenon, critical (re)thinking of the professional practices, planning approaches and decision technologies.
