*The Jerusalem 2050 Project at MIT is pleased to formally announce the 
launch of the Just Jerusalem Competition. The goal of this competition, 
which is co-sponsored by the Department of Urban Studies and Planning 
and the Center for International Studies at MIT, is to generate new 
approaches to, and potential solutions for, the many complex, seemingly 
intractable problems that the residents of Jerusalem face on a daily basis.

By looking at future possibilities for a pluralist, just, and sustainable 
city shared by all its residents, we hope to encourage new ways of 
thinking about the many difficult issues and hardships faced by 
Jerusalemites, regardless of their faith or ethnicity. The competition 
builds on the premise that daily livability, and not nationalist projects, 
could be a liberating point of departure for enabling the just city. Ideas 
from urbanists and all others who care about urban justice or city 
livability are sought. Submissions will be considered in a number of 
disciplinary categories, and from individuals or teams anywhere in the
