UKNA (Urban Knowledge Network Asia) is an inclusive network that brings together concerned scholars and practitioners engaged in collaborative research on cities in Asia. Consisting of over 100 researchers from 17 institutes in Europe, China, India and the United States, the Urban Knowledge Network Asia (UKNA) represents the largest academic international network on Asian cities.
From 2017, UKNA is expanding its orientation to include urban development in Southeast Asia in the framework of the SEANNET program (2017-2020). This new four-year initiative is about research, teaching and dissemination of knowledge on Asia through the prism of the city and urban communities. SEANNET is funded by the Henry Luce Foundation (New York, USA).
