First Collection on Urban Inequalities

Globally, cities are expected to accommodate over 80% of the world population by 2050. Transforming from a manufacturing to an information economy in the last few decades, urban regions around the world have witnessed ever-increasing inequalities. Multiple low-income communities have suffered adverse social, economic and environmental consequences, while others have been propelled into worse forms of inequality. Many devoted scholars have argued how these inequalities are, in part, rooted in culture and history, conditioned by a concentration of infrastructure-related power and even more in a political unwillingness to understand and address any forms of inequality. In this series, we bring together scholars and policymakers to share their efforts in understanding and addressing urban inequalities, keeping equity and justice at the heart of all discussions.
