Video of Q&A led by Joseph Schechla, Housing and Land Rights Network, Cairo
Learning from Cairo, co-organized by CLUSTER (Cairo Lab for Urban Studies, Training and Environmental Research) and the American University in Cairo, was an international symposium that sought to engage the current political and urban transformation unfolding in Cairo as a critical context for examining relevant international case studies and best practices in areas ranging from housing, transportation, public space and local governance to informality. The conference emphasized a comparative and interdisciplinary approach bringing practitioners, academics, officials and local stakeholders into dialogue, with the objective of generating an ongoing critical urban discourse and future visions for Cairo.
