Enclaving: Patterns of global futures in three African cities

The project "Enclaving: Patterns of global futures in three African cities" (UrbanEnclavingFutures) explores and maps the unequal distribution of urban resources in separated spaces across cities. In exploring enclaving more broadly, we recognize that social actors co-produce and engage urban spaces. 

Based on research in and on Accra, Johannesburg and Maputo we analyze enclaving as a globally emerging cultural orientation, which creates new social forms. By comparing enclaving in these cities, the project contributes to finding solutions for two key challenges of African urban development, namely housing and inequality.

This project is coordinated and funded by the Univeristy of Bergen, and at the Centre for the Advancement of Scholarship, the project is overseen by Professor Nolwazi Mkhwanazi. 

 

More detail are forthcoming.
