4EU+ Course „Urban Regulations and Political Memory: Towards understanding Spatio-Temporal aspects of Urban Development” (UNREAD) is one of the educational projects developed under Flagship 1. It is an interdisciplinary course conducted by a team of historians, lawyers and geographers from University of Warsaw, University of Milan, Charles University, during the academic year 2021/2022.
Key topics of the course are driving forces of urban changes, the development of smart cities and interdisciplinary methodologies of urban studies. The project concerns changes in the conditions of the urban development of smart cities in Poland, Italy and Czech Republic, according to three dimensions: past (history), present (law) and future (geography), emphasizing an integrated and interdisciplinary approach in order to understand the complexity of new urban centres in which real estate development must coexist with the protection of the environment and with the history and heritage of the local community.
