Project Target Countries: 

Uganda and Somaliland

Project Description: 


The research will develop a sound framework with which to analyse and explain urbanisation processes based on key spatial features of the city as a system, namely: access to urban land, distribution of spatial assets, and the urban morphology as a result of formal and informal land transactions. It will assess the factors and actors that influence these processes, in order to explain ‘how’ urban transitions are managed, steered and/or self-organized. The research will focus on Complex Land Markets (CLM) as one manifestation of political settlements with direct impacts on urban development.
