Alongside the MUP, the proposed IIHS University will offer a PhD in Urban Practice that seeks to enable original, innovative and substantive original research and new scholarship. The IIHS PhD seeks to offer a unique, inter-disciplinary programme that allows scholars from various disciplinary backgrounds to jointly create a canon of urban studies and practice that is relevant to contemporary South Asia but also speaks to all cities from its immersion in cities of the global South.

The first consultations on the proposed PhD programme were held with IIHS partners and advisors in July, 2013. It is expected that the PhD programme will retain IIHS’ commitment to learning from and for practice alongside addressing the critical need for grounded theory that reflects and theorizes from multiple understandings of place.
