“Urbanisation in Namibia“
Foundational myths, colonial legacies, spatial transformation
Like other countries in Africa Namibia is urbanising rapidly in the absence of industrialisation and formal economic growth.
This ongoing socio-spatial transformation is permeated with foundational myths of virgin land, colonial violence, spatial legacies of segregation and inequality, continued delegitimisation of the urban poor and their resistance through presence and resourcefulness.
