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.
