– from Babylon to PRD/HK
Talk by Henrik Valeur at Lund University, Sweden.
14 September 2010.
I want to talk about the creative and destructive forces of urbanization.
It is often assumed that urbanization is the result of economic, social and technological development, but maybe it is more accurate to say that it is urbanization, which enables economic, social and technological development. And in so doing urbanization provokes changes of existing orders, both in nature and among people. But without urbanization no change, no development!
