ISTP URI Group Scholars Publish Work on Informal Settlement Lighting

Scholars emerging from the Urban Research Incubator (URI) Group at the Institute for Science Technology and Policy (ISTP), linked to our Chair, recently published a video describing their work in informal settlements in the Townships of Cape Town, in South Africa. Their research involved studies of high mast lighting, and their effects on the night-time experience of locals, devising the notion of 'everynight life', developing methods to understand its qualities.
