Urban Orders Research Center (URO): Participation, self-management and collaborative design in urban spaces

Urban Orders Research Center (URO) is a transdisciplinary research center based at Aarhus University, Denmark, which focuses on participation, self-management and collaborative design in urban spaces. Taking ‘urban order’ to signify a dynamic regularity in the relationship between social life in the city and its physical environment, which has emerged without overall coordination, control or use of force, the aim of URO is to develop new transdisciplinary methods for harnessing the potentials of existing urban orders as a basis for creating viable and democratic global cities.

In parallel with the ongoing research activities, URO researchers are involved in developing a new MA programme in Urban Studies at Aarhus University.
