Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This course focuses on the city as a system through the analysis of (1) a set of neighborhoods and (2) issues affecting these neighborhoods. We will consider the relationship of these neighborhoods and issues to the functioning of the contemporary city of Rome and the wellbeing of its residents. During the first half of the semester, students work in groups to learn about a particular neighborhood through a variety of methods. For the second half of the semester, student groups select and analyze a policy issue based on their neighborhood studies. The course will consider issues relating to infrastructure, provision of services, urban design, social inclusion, economic development and governance.
