Regional Futures: The territorial politics of digitalisation-as-urbanisation in the global south

Project description

Exploring the digital transition in the Global South

The information revolution in the Global South via the adoption of smart technologies by local governments has profoundly transformed the urbanisation of metropolitan regions. The EU-funded REGFUT project will conduct the first comprehensive south–south research on the transition to automated planning processes and its implications on regional urbanisation. The project will focus on the challenges facing the peri-urban municipalities of three rapidly growing metropolitan regions where digitalisation is aimed at strategic regional planning. REGFUT will use ethnography, interviews and information audits to explore the rescaling of governance to the local digitalising state, the territorialisation of information infrastructures and the territorial politics of digitalisation.
