IURs director, Professor Guy Baeten, talks with SVT Radio about public health and city planning.

“When urban planning was developed in the 19th century, it was largely a response to the disease outbreak of that time. Public health was an important part of urban planning, and the pandemic has shown that we need to bring that perspective back, says Guy Baeten, professor of urban studies at Malmö University”
