African Urban Planning and the Global South: Pedagogy, Research, Practice

AAPS 2014 will focus on the central themes and problems of African urbanization. The conference will focus on developing our understanding of these issues, and how planning curricula can respond to them. While the conference is focused on sub-Saharan Africa, the discussion will be extended to other contexts in the global South.

The AAPS 2014 Conference will feature keynote presentations from a number of international experts on cities and urbanization in Africa and the global South, including Edgar Pieterse (African Centre for Cities) and Colin MacFarlane (Durham University). The conference is aimed at urban planning educators, researchers and practitioners seeking to enhance their knowledge of the contemporary issues and debates surrounding African and Southern cities and urbanization. It will also appeal to other built environment professionals, as well as academics in related disciplines with an interest in urban issues.

This is the first time that the AAPS conference will be open to wider attendance. We welcome submissions from those outside Africa working on urban issues in the global South.
