Digital Urban Development - How large digital corporations shape the field of urban governance (DIGI-GOV)
Smart Cities has become a hegemonic concept in urban development and planning because because new technologies can revolutionize how cities are organized and function. This digital shift is not without risks. DIGI-GOV is a research project that aims to call attention to this critical shift in the ways that contemporary digital cities are constructed, planned, mediated and governed.

What is
Humanities.lu?

Through humanities and social sciences, we learn about our cultural heritage, about the foundations of society and the ongoing construction of history. We become aware of the constitutive force of language, of diverging cultures and identities, and how social structures develop into mental structures. But the ‘soft’ sciences are not focussing on the past only. In various ways, they are also engaged with the future, they extend the scope of the thinkable and inform ongoing cultural processes. Their role is to reveal alternatives in dealing with current issues and future challenges.

At the University of Luxembourg, The Faculty of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences addresses these complex challenges with an interdisciplinary approach. The purpose of this website is to show the major outcomes of this work by presenting the Faculty’s six main areas of research: Education & Social Work, Migration, Behavioural & Cognitive Sciences, Humanities, Social Sciences, Geography & Spatial Planning. In all of these areas, researchers tackle the challenges the Luxembourgish society is facing today: How can we belong? How shall we live? How can we shape our future? They all contribute to the common goal of an inclusive, open and resourceful society. They show that #HumanitiesMatter.
