Course Description : Large metropolises in Africa are often considered as chaotic cities reduced to mere shanty towns at the periphery of the world economy. They have also been portrayed as privilege sites of contestation of authoritarian regimes or conversely as spaces in which inhabitants have learnt to deal without the state to get access to basic services in various ‘informal' ways. This course will address these central issues on the respective parts of external and African dynamics in making the cities of the continent. It will look at key issues and concepts used among academics and professionals to understand the ways cities in Africa are governed throughout the continent. It will interrogate what is supposed to be the major features of urban Africa (colonial and apartheid legacies, weaknesses of local government structures, widespread poverty, prevalence of informality and violence).
