This volume provides visionary approaches within the multi-disciplines engaged with informal settlements covering three main themes; Ã¢ÂÂInnovative Policies and Strategies to Informal UrbanismÃ¢ÂÂ; Ã¢ÂÂProduction, Operation and the Life-World of Urban SpaceÃ¢ÂÂ and finally Ã¢ÂÂThe Dynamics of Informal SettlementsÃ¢ÂÂ.ÃÂ
The book reflects multi-disciplinary experiences dealing with informality, where authors from a number of global regions present cases, practices and ideologies related to their respective context. This is elaborated through fifteen selected papers, most of which, were presented at the International conference: ARCHCAIRO 6 (the 6th International Conference), "RESPONSIVE URBANISM IN INFORMAL AREAS TOWARDS A REGIONAL AGENDA FOR HABITAT III". The conference was organized as a collaborative activity within the Ã¢ÂÂInformal Urbanism HubÃ¢ÂÂ of the HABITAT University Network Initiative (UNI), the Regional Office for Arab Countries, and Cairo University, aiming at reducing the gap between academia and practice.ÃÂ
