The project investigates the effects on marginal urban groups of certain urban visions and strategies that seek to change the image of African cities from one of chaos and decay to one of an orderly, prosperous and ‘world-class’ city. It further examines how affected groups respond to interventions affecting their opportunities in the city and their own visions for the city.
