Policy, management and regulation of networked services - Urban governance and public action in cities of the South - Economic emergence, urbanisation and infrastructural transitions in the South - Energy, drinking water, waste in developing cities - Neoliberal policies, poverty and access to essential services.


Sylvy Jaglin's research focuses on the networked services of cities in the South (poor and emerging countries), particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. It combines the analysis of socio-technical changes and territorial public action in a perspective of comparative study of urban change. They have been developed along three main lines:
▪ Management and regulation of networked services: socio-technical approaches to cities in the South.
▪ Technical government of developing cities.
▪ Economic emergence, urbanisation and infrastructural transitions.
