Urbanization and development – highlights from the conference

What is the relationship between urbanization and development? how do cities as new frontier zones affect the development processes? are cities engines of growth or poverty? how are violence dynamics produced in the relationship between cities and youth? what are the inter-linkages between urbanization and poverty? How can international migration improve the situation in cities and slums? How should cities react to criminality and environmental issues?

All these questions were addressed at the GDN 13th Annual Global Conference, which took place on June 16-18 in Budapest, Hungary. According to Gerardo della Paolera – GDN President – this year’s conference was particularly important as it opens the door for the next GDN Global Research Project.
