Invitation to HUFS/GSIAS Special Lecture 2017
From “Globopolis” to “Cosmopolis”
The Rise of Progressive Cities for Human Flourishing in Asia
When: (Thurs) September 28, 2017, 4-5.30pm
Where: Minerva International Conference Hall (B2, Main Bldg, HUFS)
Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore
Finding hope for Asia’s urban transition to fulfil aspirations for human flourishing reveal great differences among cities even within the same national settings. This presentation tracks these differences by, first, critically assessing the dominant “Globopolis” pattern of urbanization and, second, putting forth a “Cosmopolis” framework for progressive city governance. This framework for human flourishing rests on four pillars: inclusion in the public sphere; distributive justice, conviviality of social and cultural life, and environmental well-being. It departs from dominant developmentalist approaches by embedding economy in society, nesting society and economy in nature and the global environment, and giving attention to participatory governance as a foundation for city policymaking and planning. Case studies are provided to document the emergent rise of progressive cities in Asia. Examples of innovative policy tools are provided to open a larger conversation on the transformative capacities of collective human agency to make cities “of our heart’s desire” as alternative urban futures for a world facing multiple urban crises today.
