Working Papers Series

The Working Paper Series (WPS) allows for timely and wide dissemination of research findings and provides our researchers with the possibility to get early feedback on their work.

Papers published in the series are pre-publications, published electronically by the Centre for Urban Studies and available online-only via this website. Upon publication, the downloadable CUS WPS version will be removed from our website, and the download link is replaced by a direct link to the publisher's website. 

Announcements of new working papers are circulated in our newsletter
