Urban Challenges and Survival Strategies in Africa

ISBN978-1-5310-0060-8

Tags: African Studies, African World Series


The essays in this volume emanated from the 2015 Africa Conference at the University of Texas at Austin. The theme of the 15th conference was “Development, Urban Space, and Human Rights in Africa,” and constituted a robust attempt at intervening in the understanding of the complex interaction between urbanization, development, and democratic dynamics on the African continent. The essays in this volume have been specifically chosen for their diverse multidisciplinary response to the complexities of globalization, the trajectory of urbanization, and the imperatives of democracy on the survival of the continent and of Africans.  

This book is part of the African World Series, edited by Toyin Falola, Jacob and Frances Sanger Mossiker Chair in the Humanities, University of Texas at Austin.
