After taking the course, the students are expected to get familiar with the cutting edge and innovative research that are taking place in this field. In this field, be familiar with the key issues and be able to write research papers based on the case studies to address the following questions:
· What are the problems and difficulties urbanisation has caused?
· Who decide these problems to be “problems of the society”?
· Who are responsible for solving these “problems”?
· Where does the money come from?
· How to get multiple stakeholders to work together to solve a set of such complex issues that are so entangled with each other?
· How to deal with the issues of urbanisation when a society also faces other challenges such as environmental constraints, population aging or economic growth/recession?
On completion of the course, students can develop a better understanding of the driving forces behind and characteristics of urbanisation in developing countries, its impact on broader development processes, the challenges of urbanisation to different social groups and the coping strategies.
Through interactive teaching and case presentations, the students should be able to make use of the relevant theories to develop an argument and write an analytical research paper based on real life cases.
