Invitation to the book launch

The School of Architecture and Planning at Wits, the Gauteng City-Region Observatory and Wits University Press are inviting you to the launch of two books on urban governance. The scale, complexity and pace of urban change in the recent past has been disorienting. As individual cities evolve into complex urban agglomerations, sometimes called city-regions, urban scholars battle to find adequate vocabularies for contemporary urban processes while practitioners continually search for meaningful governance responses.
