Biography

Amin Kamete is Professor of Spatial Planning. Before joining Urban Studies at the University of Glasgow, Amin was lecturer in planning in the School of Environment, Natural Resources and Geography at Bangor University. A chartered town planner, Amin launched his academic career at the University of Zimbabwe in the Department of Rural and Urban Planning after which he joined the Nordic Africa Institute in Sweden as Research Programme Coordinator.

Research interests

My main area of interest is the study of urban spatial planning, cities, space and power in the Global South. More recently, I have tried to bring together work on contemporary planning theory and planning practice with particular emphasis on governmentality in the context of development planning, development management and planning enforcement practice vis-à-vis informality, marginality, (in)security and sustainability in sub-Saharan Africa.

Some of my other work considers urban development, urban governance, urban conditions and urban politics as they relate to marginalised groups and the wider significance of spatialised repression and resistance.
