The IUF collective are interested in the relationship between mobile models and urban politics. Or to use another phrase, urban policy mobilities. We have enaged in a variety of research projects and written widely on the topic. We have considered the important questions such as:
- How and why do individuals and groups learn from elsewhere?
- How are particular places of ‘best practice’ selected and drawn up?
- What role do conferences, study tours and consultants play in shaping these mobile policies?
- And how do these mobile policies interact with local politics
