The Sociology of Cities and Development Planning in Asia

This module covers the sociology of urban development planning in Asia at local, regional and global scales. We will assess the livability of cities: which includes looking at social lifeworlds, poverty, and the environment. We will discuss rural-urban linkages and transitions, uneven spatial development, peri-urban development and transborder intercity networks. Additionally we will explore national experiences in East, Southeast Asia and South Asia. This course is designed as a gateway for professional careers in applied research for urban planning.
