oa East African Geographical Review - Patterns and processes of spatial development; the case of Uganda

Volume 1974, Issue 12
  • ISSN : 1937-6812



The ""core-periphery"" model that has been recently coined by John Friedmann1 and amplified by Edward Soja2 appears to have come as a reaction against earlier theoretical approaches to regional development. For while former theories of regional development complement each other in many ways, and may each be relevant for specific kinds of planning analysis, none of them can be, as cogently argued by Friedmann,3 accepted as a sharp tool for regional development planning in its comprehensive form. The primary purpose of this article is to outline the major themes of Friedmann's ""core-periphery"" model, as incorporated with the amplifications and modifications of it by Soja, and to present it as a basis for discussion on Patterns and Processes of Spatial Development in Uganda.
