Following the virtual seminar there will be three face to face seminars in São Paulo (March 2024), as well as Johannesburg and Dar es Salaam (April 2024).

"It is not an overstatement to say that the USF Fellowship was invaluable in relation to both my career development and the advancement of my research around urban politics. The USF Fellowship provided me with an opportunity to be part a diverse, open and stimulating academic milieu; to have the space and time to focus on research, and to pave the way for future academic research development."
