LXNIGHTS is an international network of researchers working around the emerging field of night studies. The network includes 22 members from 9 countries from Europe and the Americas. It was funded in July 2014 by Dr. Jordi Nofre, Dr. Iñigo Sánchez Fuarros and Dr. Daniel Malet-Calvo, and it is based at the Interdisciplinary Center of Social Science (CICS.NOVA) of the NOVA University (Lisbon).
By providing a research framework that enables individual members and teams to successfully work together, the LXNIGHTS network aims to:
Bring together spatial, social and institutional perspectives to offer a better, and more complex understanding of the urban night.
Examine the social, spatial, public health and urban governance impacts derived from the expansion of tourist and youth-oriented nightlife in our cities.
Propose new efficient, coherent and sustainable policy recommendations to ensure community liveability through the promotion and implementation of a more inclusive, smarter and safer night.
Increase the impact of the research programme beyond the academy.
