Demographic pressure already strains the capacity of local and national governments to manage urban change. Today, nearly one billion people live in slums, and in the absence of significant intervention that number is set to double in the next two decades. Will our future be dominated by mega-cities of poverty and despair, or can urbanization be harnessed to advance human and economic development?
The magazine Emzin will provide a critical exploration of the dynamic relationship between urbanism and development. Highlighting both the challenges and opportunities associated with rapid urban change, our main focus will be the historical relationship between urbanization and development, the role cities play in fostering economic growth in a globalizing world, the unique characteristics of urban areas, the importance of urban planning, governance and politics in shaping city futures. We will try to unveil interesting artistic concepts as results of modern city life and their impact on the city culture as well as the influence living in the city has on development on human personality.
