The Annual PhD Workshop at IIHS is an educational intervention designed to provide a dedicated space for PhD candidates to expand on their work while interacting with eminent scholars in the field of academia and policy, and practice. The workshop is designed to provide a platform for early and mid to late stage PhD students to explore in-depth, and further fine-tune, their work over an intensive three-day period.
The fourth edition of Urban ARC, the Annual Research Conference of IIHS will focus on the conceptual, theoretical and practical understanding of notions of equality and equity in the context of a rapidly urbanising world. The conference will engage in discussions and conversations with notions of equity and equality through a range of lenses, across theory and praxis, across geographical and spatial contexts, and discipline and methodologies.
