Cities and urban research

AHURI’s National Cities Research Program was introduced in 2019 recognising the need for nationally coordinated, high quality and independent research to underpin and inform cities and urban policy development and decision making.

Our Cities Research Program is underpinned by 12 key themes—nine that are prominent in Australian cities and urban policy, and a further three emerging themes that are relevant to a future cities policy agenda.

Select a theme to view research, news and policy analysis related to each topic.
