The UCLP was established on the assumption that the humanitarian sector had a poor understanding of the urban context and needed to improve the manner in which it operated in urban spaces. This paper by Camillo Boano and Ricardo Martén of UCL puts forward principles for a better understanding of urban contexts through a cross-disciplinary approach. They argue that the humanitarian sector could greatly benefit from concepts and ideas that have become established in other fields, for example in urban studies, urban geography, and urban design, and which have, as yet, failed to intersect with humanitarianism.
