Discussion: The results of a DFG-funded research project on urbanization and informal dynamics

Large urban agglomerations have emerged over the past decades and, in some cases, entire rural regions were urbanized in less than a decade. These trends not only reflect an unprecedented quantitative dimension of urbanization but also the emergence of new urban forms - beyond urbanism - thus posing new challenges to regional planners, politicians and urban governance actors.
The book has been published in the HABITAT - INTERNATIONAL Series. Beyond Urbanism

A. Brenninkmeijer-Werhahn / K. Demmer (eds.): Close to Our Hearts: Personal Reflections on Marriage

Does taking a lifelong vow still make sense today? The twenty-four contributors to this book, all internationally recognized specialists in marriage, show from a variety of perspectives that it remains profoundly meaningful to understand marriage as a shared path that leads to maturity. Not only do the authors present fundamen-tal theological and philosophical ideas from the past two thousand five hundred years, but they also speak about their own personal experiences. Aldegonde Brenninkmeijer-Werhahn is the founder and director of the International Academy for Marital Spirituality in Brussels. Klaus Demmer is a member of the Order of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart and Professor Emeritus for Moral Theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. The book is a publication of the International Academy for Marital Spirituality (Brüssel)

Rethinking Africa's transcontinental continuities in pre- and protohistory 16.04.2012
International conference at the African Studies Centre, Leiden, 12-13 April 2012. Over the last decades, studies of modern Africa have driven home the fact that one cannot understand current African conditions unless from a transcontinental, global perspective - whether it comes to capital and demographic flows, development, formal education, statal political organization or the dynamics of world religions. This makes it all the more pressing to investigate the transcontinental continuities involving Sub-Saharan Africa in pre- and protohistoric times. To what extent is it true (as is widely assumed) that the roots of contemporary African predicaments, and their possible solutions, lie primarily in the recent conditions and developments of the 19th-21st centuries? Or, alternatively, to what extent can we discern transcontinental relations and dynamics of a much longer time span, shaping and reshaping African cultures, polities, economies and religions in close relation with the other continents? And, lest we make the mistake of attributing self-evidence and global applicability to the dominant (but rapidly declining), potentially hegemonic North Atlantic perspective: what instruments do we need to develop in the theoretical, methodological and epistemological fields in order to avoid the blinkers of regional self-interest and ethnocentricity, and to move effectively - with an ever-increasing and ever more vocal African participation - towards valid, reliable and relevant global knowledge about Africa?Black Athena Comes of Age
