Secondly, it enhances the capacity of the students to be able to develop a coherent research design.

The different research perspectives and methods are practiced through several ‘takes’. In this process, research questions are sharpened, texts and empirical materials are discussed, and connected with the in-depth methodological approaches. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the course Urban Territories II, will be conducted through meetings in presence and by circumstance through various digital formats.
