Urbanization and Development: Multidisciplinary Perspectives

International Development public lecture


This lecture introduces a significant new collection of multidisciplinary papers Urbanization and Development: Multidisciplinary Perspectives published by Oxford University Press that focus on urbanization and its implications for development. It raises four questions: (i) What is so special about the urban context? (ii) Why is urbanization and urban growth important to development at the present conjuncture? (iii) What are the strengths and limitations of our current state of knowledge about urbanization and development from the policy perspective and finally, (iv) how can a multidisciplinary perspective on the urban context add value to development research and policy?

Jo Beall is Director Education and Society at the British Council and formerly Professor of Development Studies at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Ravi Kanbur is T.H. Lee Professor of World Affairs, International Professor of Applied Economics and Management and Professor of Economics at Cornell University.
