Summary: This lecture will explore the need for, difficulties in implementing, and some of the findings from a major research programme focusing on an in-depth case study with longitudinal elements undertaken 2009-13 in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, designed as an inductive study vis-à-vis emerging urbanism in Sub-Saharan Africa. It will focus on how new concept definition based on empirical inter-disciplinary research needs to be the basis for such an improved understanding of cities of the South.
