Urban Redevelopment in Ukraine Examined

Chicago, IL, February 9, 2023 – Haphazard regional development and unbalanced growth in post-Soviet Ukraine were already significant challenges before the war. Post-war realities will only exacerbate social and economic developments that were lacking clear, coherent solutions.

As a direct response, Fordham’s Real Estate Institute and the Kyiv School of Economics (KSE) will launch a series of virtual symposia to examine the foundation and future of residential, commercial, and industrial real estate activities in the aftermath of the conflict in Ukraine. The partnership seeks to build an intellectual foundation for a strong and innovative economy of Ukraine as well as develop the real estate services, public policy, and governance needed for a thriving and viable real estate ecosystem.

“Well-trained urban economists and real estate specialists are a fundamental requirement to build a socially inclusive and economically sustainable system of Ukrainian cities. We look forward to welcoming our colleagues from the Fordham University Real Estate Institute and The Counselors of Real Estate in launching new educational initiatives at KSE,” said Mihnea Constantinescu, Ph.D., head of research at the National Bank of Ukraine and visiting scholar and academic director of Kyiv School of Economics’ urban development program.
