The debate around informal urbanism has been evolving in planning literature since 1960s. Started by Hart’s notion of informal economy (1973), the term soon found its way into mainstream planning literature. Since then, there has been different approaches regarding both ‘understanding’ and ‘mediation’ in informal city. What have been less discussed in the literature are the place based studies by global South scholars that establish their analysis on the ‘lived experiences’ of residents (Holston, 2009). Even though some research has attempted to present such views, there is little research done on discrepancies between current formal urban planning systems and inhabitants urgencies. In conclusion, attention towards addressing the role of urban planning deficits in emergence of informal settlements seems to be disproportionately low across the literature, calling for another deficit to be addressed.
