Africa Centre for Cities International Urban Conference 2018

Event Organiser: University of Cape Town

Date: February 1, 2018

To celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the establishment of the African Centre for Cities at the University of Cape Town, the International Urban Conference draws together leading urban scholars

and practitioners from all corners of Africa and the world to take stock of ground-breaking urban research, to explore new avenues for enquiry and collaboration, and to make visible the vibrant state of our broad and heterogeneous field.

The programme will explore and interrogate diverse readings and conceptualisations of African cities, their micro-realities and dynamics, and their relationships to national, regional and global debates.
