PLE 725 Multicultural Cities and Public Policies

Recent immigration patterns have prompted exploration of how local governments provide urban facilities, services and infrastructures. This course will teach students how modern cities of diverse cultures evolve and what policy approaches can sustain them. The course balances a mix of theoretical explanations about the geographic, political and economic bases of multicultural cities and critically reviews current policies and planning practices. It compares cities around the world, yet the Greater Toronto Area remains the pivot. Lect: 3 hrs. Course Weight: 1.00 Billing Units: 1
