Rachel Keeton gave a presentation on the ongoing research for her PhD at IHS, Erasmus University on 14 February 2018. The lecture touched on the spatial challenges of contemporary African New Towns, and explored alternative approaches. The objective of the research is to establish a set of planning principles that will inspire and guide future New Town planners in the African context. The draft guidelines presented at the close of the presentation proved to be fertile ground for discussion with the housing, policy, and governance experts at IHS.
