My teaching seeks to equip participants with critical understanding of how global-local structure and agency factors determine the nature of urban policy and planning; problems addressed its content, outcomes and impacts in diverse geo-political economy contexts. I use participatory teaching approaches that integrate analysis of theoretical concepts, case studies, group projects, UK field studies and guest lectures. Students exit with the expertise to operate and flourish as urban policy and planning practitioners anywhere in the world.

P38168 – Urban Land Policy and Urban Management
P38169 – Urban Policy in Practice: Programme and Project Implementation
