This workshop will take stock of what we know and what we need to know about cities and development in Asia; will gather experiences of urbanization and urban growth from the region; and offer policy options for an inexorably urbanizing world.
We invite submissions of papers written on Asian cities on the topics outlined in the call for papers - see URL - . Those wishing to present a paper should send a detailed abstract by 15 July 2008 to the email address given below. All applicants should submit a short CV, including their full contact address, institutional affiliation, relevant publications and professional experience, nationality, age and gender. Final drafts of accepted papers are required by 15 November 2008.
There is no workshop fee. Subject to UN policies and procedures, UNU-WIDER will cover the costs of meals, airport transfers and accommodation for all—and air travel costs for some—workshop participants. Preference will be given to funding participants from developing countries.
