Urban Theory and History
From SDG Academy on 23 August, 2019
This chapter features a discussion of the different types of research modalities there are to support inclusive, sustainable urban development, induing the general issues faced by researchers in city and regional planning, the various approaches and modalities used to conduct research, and a plea for supporting multidisciplinary methods of research. Three global conversations about peace and conflict, climate change, and inequality are addressed and discussed here in the context of urbanization and the trend to cities. The definition of urbanization is not the same in every context and must be solidified, and ways to have healthy, prosperous cities are discussed.
