Material type: materialTypeLabelBookCham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, 2018Description: xv, 255 pages : illustrations, maps ; 22 cm.Content type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 9783319694955 (hbk.).Subject(s): City planning -- Developing countriesDDC classification: 307.1216091724 DE Summary: This title addresses the on-going crisis of informality in rapidly growing cities of the global South. The authors offer a Southern perspective on planning theory, explaining how the concept of conflicting rationalities complements and expands upon a theoretical tradition which still primarily speaks to global 'Northern' audiences. De Satgé and Watson posit that a significant change is needed in the makeup of urban planning theory and practice - requiring an understanding of the 'conflict of rationalities' between state planning and those struggling to survive in urban informal settlements - for social conditions to improve in the global South.
