Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft hosts second Urban Africa roundtable event

28 March 2019

Ricky Burdett and Philipp Rode speak today at the second Urban Africa: beyond development as usual hosted by LSE Cities Urban Age partner Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft.

The event aims to unpack the urban dimension of German policies on Africa and to reflect more broadly on development practice. Based on the experiences of a first workshop in March 2018 and the Urban Age conference in Addis Ababa in November 2018, the roundtable seeks to deepen the understanding of urban dynamics in sub-Sahara Africa and to reflect on existing frameworks of engagement.

The event will bring together leading international researchers and advisors from the fields of urban and economic development, foreign policy, and development cooperation, as well as regional and urban experts from sub-Sahara Africa.
