The UrBan


Urbanization is a rapid and historic transformation of human social roots on a global scale, whereby predominantly rural culture is being rapidly replaced by predominantly urban culture.

It refers to the population shift from rural areas to urban areas, the gradual increase in the proportion of people living in urban areas, and the ways in which each society adapts to this change.

It is predominantly the process by which towns and cities are formed and become larger as more people begin living and working in central areas. It is predicted that by 2050 about 64% of the developing world and 86% of the developed world will be urbanised. That is equivalent to approximately 3 billion urbanites by 2050, much of which will occur in Africa and Asia. Notably, the United Nations has also recently projected that nearly all global population growth from 2017 to 2030 will be by cities, about 1.1 billion new urbanites over the next 13 years.


Gentrification is a process of renovating deteriorated urban neighbourhoods by means of the influx of more affluent residents. Further steps are increased investments in a community and the related infrastructure by real estate development businesses, local government, or community activists and resulting economic development, increased attraction of business, and lower crime rates. In addition to these potential benefits, gentrification can lead to population migration and displacement.

Economic Inequality

Economic inequality is the unequal distribution of income and opportunity between different groups in society. It is a concern in almost all countries around the world and often people are trapped in poverty with little chance to climb up the social ladder. According to CS Global Wealth Report in 2018, Thailand is one of the most unequal country where 1% of Thai owned 66.9% of the country’s wealth while a lot of people earn income below the standard rate.

Individual vs Collective

A major dimension of cultural orientation is individualism versus collectivism. Individualists tend to pursue self- fulfilment and uniqueness, whereas collectivists emphasise social obligations and group goals. Individualistic cultures, relationships are often seen as voluntary, and it’s not uncommon to choose to end relationships that are not beneficial. On the other hand, relationships in collectivistic cultures are often seen as more stable and permanent. Additionally, researchers have hypothesised that, in collectivistic cultures, there is a greater obligation to not be a burden on close others.

People from individualistic cultures are more likely to have an independent view of themselves. On the other hand, people from collectivistic cultures are more likely to have an interdependent view of themselves.
