    An Everyday Geography of Ramallah

    Families and Cities:<br>An Everyday Geography of Ramallah

This project, funded by The Leverhulme Trust, seeks to understand how families enable people to live in cities through everyday practices that create and maintain specific social, economic and political resources and connections. Adopting an ethnographic approach, the empirical research will focus on how Palestinian families are able to live in the city of Ramallah. The project will develop a better understanding of contemporary Palestinian life by exploring the geographies of migrants and apartments, advance Urban Studies debates by theorising cities in relation to families, and assist academics, policy makers and NGOs concerned with addressing problems associated with rapid urban change in the global South.
