Description:
UNU-WIDER Project Workshop "Beyond the Tipping Point: Development in an Urban World"
Location:
London School of Economics, London, United Kingdom
Subject:
Some of the specific issues to be considered are: ♦ What are the forces driving urbanization and how do they differ from one region to another? ♦ What are the economic and environmental costs and benefits of urban agglomerations? ♦ What is the link between urban infrastructure and poverty reduction? ♦ What are the gender dimensions of urbanization and urban living? ♦ How do urban spaces affect interaction between different ethnic, racial and religious groups? Does demographic concentration exacerbate political conflict or promote engaged state-society relations? ♦ Is our urban future to be characterized by poverty and inequality with fear and violence or sustainable and prosperous urban spaces characterized by inclusiveness and cosmopolitanism? ♦ How can urban planning and urban development strategies be integrated into and help inform national and international development policy?
