Funds and Projects

  • URBAN TRANSFORMATIONS: RE-VISITING DEVELOPMENT IN CAIRO
    A collaborative workshop organized by researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Department of Urban Studies and planning, Cairo University’s Department of Architecture, and the America University in Cairo’s Center for Migration and Refugee Studies
    Funded Project
  • Gender Equity in Cities of the MENA Region
    Awarded fund from the Urban Studies Foundation - Seminar Series Competition, 2018. which aims to support the generation of internationally excellent research in all areas of urban studies.
    the team aims to organize a series of seminars, to address women’s right to the city, especially in MENA Cities. These seminars will discuss women’s rights within different subjects & will address various domains that are a close relationship with women’s rights, and beyond the parameters of the Gender Inequality Index (GII).
    The discussions will look deep at the causes of the inferior percentage of the GII measurement index and will propose questions such as: are women’s rights respected within the design of the new cities? Are women’s rights taken into consideration while developing/ eradication of informal settlements? Is the female perspective regarded in public spaces? Do women have adequate transportation choices to help them actively engage in the labor market?
    Funded Project - 18000 English Pound
  • Education Programme of Aga Khan Trust of Culture for teaching activities
    Fund from the Education Programme of Aga Khan Trust of Culture for teaching activities,
    The department dedicated two courses to this collaboration that can be categorized under the Aga Khan Historic Cities Program (AKHCP). The first course was an undergrad core course titled “Introduction to Urban Design,” which will host around 25 students and the second is a postgrad elective course titled “Conservation of Architectural Heritage.”
    The department had chosen these two courses in an attempt to minimize the gap between academia and the practice in the field of urban revitalization. It was an excellent chance for both undergrad and postgrad students to test closely how the research be implemented on-site. Although, the chosen case studies have been funded by the AKTC under the AKHCP which gives a new perspective about the fund organizations and how their general guidelines are implemented, and especially when it comes to the communities’ revitalization physically, socially, culturally and economically like is the case with AKTC projects.
    Funded Project - 5620 EURO
Fall - 2017
