Présentation de l'éditeur :

It has increasingly been recognised that rural and urban areas are inextricably interlinked. This book adopts a fresh approach to the issue of rural-urban dynamics through a study of the changing nature of livelihoods, mobility and markets in ten study sites across four countries of Africa and Asia. Building on detailed fieldwork conducted in Ghana, Tanzania, Vietnam and Thailand, the authors explore how settlements and livelihoods are being transformed as long-term inhabitants and recent migrants embrace new economic activities many of which are linked to global markets.

The book is structured around the concept of ‘frontier’ which is conceptualized as being a dynamic space where the forces of economic, demographic and social change are brought to bear. The study sites include agricultural frontiers (coffee, cocoa, pineapples and fresh fruit), handicraft and manufacturing frontiers, and mining frontiers (gold and diamonds). In all of the cases, global value chain dynamics have played a pivotal role in shaping local livelihoods. Some settlements are developing into new urban centres whilst others are suffering from a boom and bust experience due to the unreliability of export markets. The similarities and differences between the frontier settlements are drawn out by comparing frontiers of similar types and by highlighting the theoretical and policy implications of the findings from all the frontier types.

The originality of the book lies in its combination of conceptual clarity, methodological coherence and empirical richness. By combining detailed empirical findings with theoretical insight from debates on livelihoods, global value chains, mobility patterns, settlement dynamics and rural-urban relations, the book sheds new light on these issues within an overall framework of development trajectories in Africa and Asia. Given scholars’ and international agencies’ current interest in the spatial dimensions of economic development, this contribution is particularly timely with its fresh geographical approach to development issues; this book is a pertinent and authoritative read for anyone researching or learning in the field of development.

Biographie de l'auteur :

Jytte Agergaard is Associate Professor at the Department of Geography and Geology, University of Copenhagen. Much of her research has focused on Nepal where she has carried out extensive fieldwork for research on various aspects of social development including gender inequalities, migration and mobility dynamics/patterns and education. She has also been concerned with recent trends in human geography, especially current trends in social geography and geographies of globalisation. She is a member of a number of networks on development research in Denmark and abroad.

Niels Fold is Professor at the Department of Geography and Geology, University of Copenhagen. He has recently participated in a research programme on globalisation and economic restructuring in Africa, in which he worked on global agro-industrial chains with relevance for perennial crops in Ghana (cocoa, oil palm, shea nuts). Previously Niels has worked on industrial development in Malaysia, both on upgrading processes in the palm oil industry and on local industrialisation trajectories (Penang). His current research interests include a comparison of the dynamics of cross-continental food commodity chains.

Katherine V. Gough is a British trained geographer who is employed as Associate Professor in the Department of Geography and Geology, University of Copenhagen. Her main research focus is urbanisation in developing countries with a focus on urban land and housing markets, urban governance and civil society, home-based enterprises and urban youth. Her principle research areas are Latin America and West Africa, especially Ghana where she has been mainly working in the peri-urban area of Accra. As part of a comparative project on urban youth she will conduct research in Hanoi in spring 2004. Katherine works in an advisory capacity to Danida on urban issues and together with Cecilia Tacoli has run a workshop for Danida employees on rural-urban linkages.
