The subject explores the contemporary conception and delivery of inclusive cities. The aim is to understand aspects of social exclusion and their urban manifestation in Australia and some overseas contexts. Case studies, working policy and theoretical perspectives will be used to highlight key features of inclusive planning for cities, including for specific population groups like youth, disabled people, refugees and women in the city. Students will examine the lived experience of disadvantage in the city, contemplate the underlying issues through different theoretical lenses and consider relevant urban policy and other responses that are intended to promote inclusive cities.
On completion of the subject, students will be competent in:
