About the Course

The course is replaced by KGA121 Globalization, urbanisation and unequal development from autumn 2020.

The course provides indepth knowledge of the complexity that relations between globalisation, development and urban environments involve from a north-south perspective. 

A red thread running through the course regards processes (at different levels of scale) behind an uneven development within cities, between cities, and between urban and rural areas, as well as the consequences of this for people's formal and informal livelihood strategies and resource use. Gender aspects are in focus throughout the course.
