African Cities: Competing Claims on Urban Land

Paul Jenkins

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract / Description of output

This book chapter represents a unique inter-disciplinary study across African historical study and contemporary urban planning analysis. It draws on the author’s long-term professional and academic research engagement with Maputo, the capital of Mozambique – and includes significant new content on the links between historical and contemporary development trends. The paper, however, places this city as a case study within a wider review of urban development literature on African urban areas, which permits it to extrapolate some key trends – raising important questions for future urban development in the Sub-Saharan Africa region.
