public policy impact

LXNIGHTS aims at making our research agenda and research findings relevant to policy-making in a way that has an impact on how policy related to the urban nightlife is formed, implemented or understood. We believe that independent, quality-driven research can be useful for policy makers to address the challenges and opportunities that the urban-night poses. The proposals to  create a Lisbon Nightlife Commission and a Observatório da Noite go in that direction.

We are also open to collaborations with networks outside academia such as NGOs, industry and think-tanks.
