  • Shrinking Cities International Research Network (SCiRN™) 

SCiRN™ was founded in 2004 at the Institute of Urban and Regional Development at the University of California, Berkeley, when and where scholars from various countries realised that although the decline of cities and urban regions was a common issue for urban and regional planners in different local contexts, there was little comparative research on this topic. Today, SCiRN™ is a worldwide research consortium of scholars and experts from various institutions pursuing research on shrinking cities in a global context, whose mission is to advance international understanding and promote scholarship about the topic.
