Urbanization, gender and the global south: A transformative knowledge network

Principal Investigator: Linda Peake.

Funding: SSHRC Partnership Grant.

Term: 2017-2023.

Situated within the dynamic early 21st century context of urbanization, this GenUrb project conducts research and engages in public education and policy enrichment in seven strategically chosen cities (Cairo, Cochabamba, Georgetown (Guyana), Ibadan, Mumbai, Ramallah, and Shanghai) in lower-middle-income countries to advance understanding of how the relationship between poverty and inequality is being transformed, focusing in particular on how this is reconstituting gender relations and women’s right to the city.
