GEOG 3023 - Cities in the Developing World

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2016

The course information on this page is being finalised for 2016. Please check again before classes commence.

Cities in `developing' countries face a range of issues often distinct in nature and scale from cities in `developed' countries. This course provides a focused exploration of cities in the developing world and equips students with the theoretical tools necessary to analyse these issues and the processes which underpin them. This course will examine cities from across the developing world but it will pay particular attention to rapidly urbanising countries such as India and China. The issues discussed will vary from year to year but will include at least four of the following: population growth and urbanisation; housing; urban restructuring and global economic networks; environmental sustainability; transport, access and mobility; location and supply of infrastructure and services.
