Research report (imported) 2011 - Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity
Why aren’t the forces of globalization creating open cities? In South Africa and India new urban elites are closely connected to a global economy and culture. Meanwhile, the segregation of their immediate neighbors in slums and townships creates unprecedented harm to the human development of marginal communities. A comparison between two global cities, Johannesburg and Mumbai, will refocus research on segregation.
