PolisMaker Master program

The PolisMaker program focuses on the management of urban transformation with a practical approach providing different methods, skills and tools: urban and environmental legislation derived from European and national laws, management of international contracts, negotiation processes and conflict and risk management provide some examples.

Such skills will find their context in a specific holistic approach aiming at highlighting the existential dimension of space and the economic and social dynamics of each specific area also with regard to everyday life.
