Island Cities and Urban Archipelagos.

Island Cities and Urban Archipelagos (ICUA) is a research network under the Island Dynamics organisation. ICUA promotes research at the intersection of island studies and urban studies, concerning the culture, economy, politics, planning, environment, and design of urban areas based on islands worldwide. ICUA investigates what island cities can tell us about broader wider development processes and contributes to broadening the island studies research field.


ICUA brings together researchers from universities and other institutions across the globe. ICUA:

Organises ICUA conferences

Manages the ‘Bibliography of Urban Island Studies’

Operates a dedicated ICUA mailing list.
