Abstract [en]

With the adoption of a New Urban Agenda at the United Nations Habitat IIIconference in 2016, it is the first time a comprehensive global policy commitment on cities is introduced in Global Governance. Together with Sustainable Development Goal 11, we witness a pro-urban shift in global discourse. Urbanization’s celerity has instead appertained to one of the distinctive development phenomena for a long time. In the light of its pace, it comes as a surprise that committing on global urban policy took that long. This thesis aims at examining the long path to the New Urban Agenda. It will investigate its forerunners, the conferences Habitat I and Habitat II and will unfold undergone shifts in Global Governance and development discourses. It will finally assess the means of the pro-urban discourse on cities in the New Urban Agenda while problematizing the limits of its normative core.
