The Urban Question in Namibia: a Bibliography

The urban question in Namibia remains a neglected field of inquiry. Much of the research in Namibia focuses on agricultural, “natural”, and other processes taking place is less-inhabited places. The perception that most of the country is “nature” is also a mental conception produced through the legacies of colonisation and apartheid. Today, however, most of those living in Namibia find themselves living in one of the 57 proclaimed urban areas; and projections indicate this will raise up to 70% in the coming three decades.
