Observatório das Metrópoles

Observatório das Metrópoles is a National Institute of Science and Technology (INCT), based at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), which works systematically and articulately on the metropolitan challenges posed to national development, with a reference to understanding the changing relationships between society, the economy, the state and the territories formed by Brazil’s large urban agglomerations. The right to the city in the metropolis and urban governance are the themes of some of the ongoing projects.
