Migration, temporary settlement and new urbanisms in Africa

Our activities

Data collection
The method of inquiry of the research is both qualitative and quantitative, involving specifically surveys in the three countries and three types of settlements to extract selected information to be compared across case studies.

Fieldwork involved in-depth field research in Angola, the Democratic republic of Congo and Zambia. Facing the many challenges posed by Covid-19 for travelling, the team members managed to conduct a series of interviews with specialists (academics, policy stakeholders, other qualified informants) and a survey to a variety of urban dwellers in 2021 and 2022.

Inception workshop March 2020

We held, just before the closures caused by the pandemic, an inception workshop in Uppsala in 2020.

We hope to be able to organise a final workshop in Lusaka or in Ghent in 2022.
