Research Project: New Urban Agendas Under Planetary Urbanisation
While discussions on urban sustainability have focused on cities and urban
regions, many agricultural territories are equally exposed to rapid and
far-reaching urban transformation processes with massive social and
environmental implications, opening a research gap for ‘agri-urbanisms'.
The New Urban Agendas under Planetary Urbanisation module aims to address the
gap by analysing selected processes of ‘extended urbanisation' in agricultural
territories across Europe and Asia.
The module combines detailed qualitative analysis with quantitative geospatial
analysis and modelling, thereby linking the social, political and cultural
aspects of urbanisation to transformations in land use patterns, soil
ecosystems and ecosystem services.
The position offered requires the candidate to work in the following three
