  • that it is unique. Two policies are considered : decreasing urban unemployment benefits and subsidizing urban employment. Decreasing the unemployment benefit in the city creates urban jobs and reduces rural–urban migration since new migrants have to spend some time
  • unemployed before they can find a job in the city. Raising employment subsidies increases urban employment but may also increase urban unemployment because it triggers more rural–urban migration.

  • Who's Participation? Who's Sustainability ? A Critical Analysis of Initiatives for Urban Sustainability inIndia
  • Environment ; Environmental justice ; India ; Madras ; Participation ; Political ecology ; Stream ; Sustainable development ; Tamil Nadu ; Town planning ; Urban landscape ; Urban park ; Urbanization
  • This paper considers urban environmental sustainability in cities of the global South. Drawing on the insights of urban political ecology and a critique of participatory development, the author argues that environmental sustainability initiatives
  • mask the political economy of environmental injustice and uneven urban development. This argument is fleshed out through a case study of the Adyar Poonga river restoration project in Chennai, India. The case study highlights two key dimensions of what
  • is termed the ‘depoliticisation’ of the production of urban nature. First, the political conflicts that surround urban environmental projects are neutralized through a definition of sustainability that is primarily concerned with making environmentalism
  • and economic development compatible. Second, conflicts surrounding urban environments are ostensibly ‘depoliticized’ through highly selective practices of ‘participation’. Generalized in this way, the discourse and practice of participation gloss over the power
  • asymmetries that characterize the civic sphere in urban India. As environmental best practice is being actively formulated and replicated through projects like the Adyar Poonga, it becomes ever more urgent, to interrogate the mechanisms of political inclusions
  • /exclusion and to question who benefits from urban environmental change.

  • Concept ; Inter-disciplinary approach ; Social structure ; Urban area ; Urban morphology ; Urban settlement ; Urban structure
  • The purpose of this interdisciplinary article is to present a structural unit of urban space termed the morphomark, as a concept adopted from urban morphology. The article compiles concepts of space, as these reflect morphological processes
  • of the interdisciplinary study of spatial (natural and social) structure. The article reproduces morphology as a subject area of the disciplines for which the study of forms are common. Urban morphology as an art of urban forms is also discussed. – (BJ)

  • The article critically examines the model of stages of urban development and its operationalization for empirical research. We identify and display shortcomings in the model through an analysis of changes in the spatial distribution
  • of the population and dwellings in Prague and Vienna urban regions from 1980 to 2001. We therefore suggest an alternative method of classifying forms of urbanization. - (EN)
