Students' coursework and theses

Students engage with social inequalities across the different EUR faculties.  

This collection gives you access to their work: Essays, research papers, websites, podcasts, and theses offer us a rich entry into key social urban problems and challenges. Most of them focus on Rotterdam. “Around the world” assignments extend the scope of this collection and invite us to adopt a more comparative and international perspective.
