In a series of SUEUAA working papers, the team will focus on overarching themes (environment, policy, migration, gender, and the economy), and show the similarities and differences across the different study cities in terms of the capacity of the University to respond to these city-wide issues. The second paper in this series focuses on the policy rhetoric surrounding University engagement in city-level challenges.

The Strengthening Urban Engagement of Universities in Africa and Asia (SUEUAA) project team involves academics from six cities in the Global South: Johannesburg (South Africa), Dar-es-Salaam (Tanzania), Harare (Zimbabwe), Manila (Philippines), Sanandaj (Iran), and Duhok (Iraq); and one city in the Global North, Glasgow (Scotland).  At times this blog will highlight incidences where the team members were offered the opportunity to give presentations, lectures, seminars, in order to highlight the public engagement work of the team.

Mike Osborne and Kasia Borokowska were very pleased to be able to represent the SUEUAA project at the second meeting in London on 19 June of projects funded with the British Academy's Cities and Infrastructure Programme with the Global Challenges Research Programme. We were joined by representatives of other projects, each reporting on their progress. It became very evident that much synergy exists within the programme, and we were very pleased to be approached by colleagues from Mexico interested in joining our project.

This is the seventh case study from SUEUAA (Strengthening Urban Engagement in Universities in Asia and Africa), written by Dr Nematollah Azizi of the University of Kurdistan. The project is interested in how Universities in the Global South can contribute to solving geographical, economic and social issues in their cities.
