The University of Pretoria in partnership with the City of Tshwane has launched a fascinating new cross-faculty research project called The Capital Cities Project earlier this month. 

This new research project, subtitled Space, Justice and Belonging, will involve several disciplines within the university community, civil society, the City of Tshwane, and provincial and national spheres of government.

The Member of Mayoral Committee responsible for City Planning and Economic Development, Subesh Pillay, welcomed the students and the esteemed guests to the event while the Executive Mayor, Kgosientso Ramokgopa, delivered the keynote address of the day.

The Capital Cities Project is the latest project of the University’s institutional research themes where researchers and postgraduate students across faculties with related research objectives and topics are grouped together.

In The Capital Cities Project, experts from different faculties will collaborate by asking new questions about Pretoria, or Tshwane, as a city and as a capital city. The faculties involved are: Humanities, Law, Health Sciences, Natural and Agricultural Sciences, Engineering, Built Environment and Information Technology, Theology and Economic and Management Sciences.

The individuality of capital cities in general, and Tshwane in particular, will be investigated from the viewpoint of a variety of disciplines, including arts and languages, architecture and urban planning, social work, criminology, law, history, drama, psychology, anthropology, political science and economics. This project will contribute to documenting and theorising space and justice as it relates to the city and other capital cities.
