|Report||In the early days of February 2015 I went to Cairo to conduct expert interviews with several experienced persons on urban development and urban policy in North Africa after the Arab Spring. The aim was to get a better understanding of the current urban dynamics in the North African region and, further, to be able to embed my Morocco-based research topic in the whole regional framework. Fortunately, due to the help of several colleagues, I was able to meet leading people of the World Bank and UN-Habitat as well as founders and activists of so called bottom-up organisations that tackle urban issues in the overwhelming city of Cairo. I had a really great and productive time in Cairo.|
