abstract
The project aims at defining structural elements of urbanisation in the Low Countries (urban networks, functions in an international and regional economy), at explaining social developments (social mobility, geography of poverty and wealth, political and economic power, marginalisation, the impact of public and private finance, the position of social groups in the city, such as strangers) and at determining the elements that define social identity (elites, illegitimate children).
