Abstract : Using the work of several scholars, this position paper suggests possible paths in the study of the diverse forms of urban expansion that ripple out across emerging countries, notably in Asia. With global productive capacities relocating within Asian cities, these urban centers are expanding at unrivalled rates. Little research has been carried out on the urban sprawl in the Global South. These supposedly universal paradigms used to conceptualize western urbanisation tend to acknowledge non-Western dynamics as backward. However, the convergence implies both the decline of cities in the Global North and the rise of cities in the Global South within a middle path characterized by flexibility and uncertainty. A connected geography is required to shift to a global perspective of urban dynamics.
