Glocal 2020 Magazine Launch: Cities and International Development

June 18, 2020

 

On Thursday June 18th, 2020, the Glocal Program launched its Annual Magazine, written and edited by Glocal alumni and students.

This year, the Magazine focuses on international development in the context of cities, urban renewal, urban migration and city lives. The different perspectives from the field present a complex picture, of inequality and poverty, but also one of opportunities, for public participation in decision making; shared space and cultural exchange; and channels for urban renewal and peacebuilding.
