POG 443 Global Cities

Developments in the 20th century pushed some issues beyond the reach of national governments while simultaneously challenging urban areas to address such matters as deindustrialization and the emergence of “world cities;” immigration, migration and multiculturalism; and urban ecology – while also providing efficient and democratic urban governance. Are cities up to the task? This course takes the measure of some modern challenges, examines their roots, and explores various urban responses. (Comparative) Lect: 3 hrs.
