CITYSCALERS is a research project that focuses on the interplay between urban renewal, incorporation of migrants and cultural diversity. It analyses the relationship between migrants and the remaking, re-imagining and competitive repositioning of cities in the context of neo-liberal globalization. Research is conducted in Vienna, Berlin, Budapest, Linz, Essen, Pecs, and Marseille.


CITYSCALERS is located at the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Vienna.

CITYSCALERS is funded by the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF).
