CUGS Global Vantage Point Series: "Why African Cities Matter to Urban Studies" by Garth Myers, Paul E. Raether Professor of Urban International Studies at Trinity College.

Sub-Saharan Africa is the world's least urbanized region, and its cities have been discounted or disregarded in much of the literature of urban studies. My purpose in the talk will be to highlight reasons for making Africa's cities more central to global urban studies thinking, touching on the impacts of colonialism, diversity of processes of informalization, experiences with governance and service delivery reform, struggles with security, poverty, and inequality, and degree of cosmopolitanism found in urbanism in Africa. Lecture presented on September 27, 2011 at Trinity College, Center for Urban and Global Studies.
