CAPACITY BUILDING WORKSHOP: A COMPARATIVE APPROACH TO RESEARCHING INFORMALITY AND INEQUALITY IN URBAN AFRICA
This workshop is designed to improve the knowledge of participants on the concepts of informality and inequality from an African urban context, to examine extant theories that can be used to guide research on informality and inequality and also to introduce comparative research and its methodologies to participants. It would also support the research activities of the Network, by providing the participants with knowledge they can build on.
Issues around informality and inequality are longstanding in Urban Africa. Given the new realities of the profound impact COVID-19 on city economies, governance and livelihoods, the manifestations of informality and inequality have become highly visible in such areas as housing adequacy, access to healthcare, access to economic and physical infrastructure and even access to the policy class. This capacity development workshop builds on issues emanating from series of blog articles and webinars on COVID and African cities carried out by the ARNUHC in 2019. There is a need to do more. The workshop is designed to bring together all cadres of researchers, multidisciplinary writing teams and other interested stakeholders in policy, industry and professional groups across Africa.
