About

There is much talk about the importance of participatory, bottom-up approaches to urban development, but reading about it is not enough to understand it, support it, critique it, and help make it better. Students in this program have a unique opportunity to join the efforts of the leading global network of urban poor working to improve their own neighborhoods, or an African research hub dedicated to the theoretical and practical re-thinking of urban development paradigms from a Southern perspective.The South Africa field program, offered by The New School’s Studley Graduate Program in International Affairs, helps master's, undergraduate, and PhD students reach communities and projects in the townships of Cape Town, South Africa. This program is unlike a traditional internship and it also goes beyond a narrow focus on community service. Instead, it provides students with a critical perspective that is grounded and relevant. The spring coursework prepares you to understand and engage with environmental and social justice battles as well as participatory urban policy narratives.
The summer fieldwork offers you a first-hand perspective of how community-led urban development processes take shape in reality.
