Urbanisation and Migration

The side effects of a growing economy and urban migration include the creation of a new social class. These new urban citizens often do not have access to public goods and services, including education, health care, and affordable housing. Due to these constraints many have no choice but to opt for informal employment, which worsens the prospects of social inclusion. The increasing inequality results in social tensions and civil unrest in many countries.

In this Policy Initiative, think tanks from Brazil, China, Germany, India, Russia and South Africa are addressing the challenges outlined above by developing policy proposals to be implemented by their respective governments.

The Policy Initiative is coordinated by the Chinese think tank CIRD.
