An instructor from university of Baghdad gets the first honored rank from Egypt
Dr. Abbas Hashem Sahan, an instructor at the center of urban and regional planning for graduate studies at Baghdad university gained the doctorate of philosophy in urban sociology for his thesis entitled “backward slum at Baghdad: a field study” from the department of sociology in the faculty of arts, university of Mansoura, Egypt. This honored certificate is given only for very distinguished theses in Egypt with recommendation for printing it at the expense of that university for being circulated in Arabic and foreign universities. This study came to discuss the problem of slums occurred in Baghdad as a result of the changes happened after the war of 2003 and the widespread communities with indiscriminate sprawl and slums that became a universal phenomenon found in most societies worldwide, broadly in the cities of the third world. This is a physical phenomenon that could not be separated from social and economic conditions of society whose causes vary a lot. The deanery of the center honored Dr. Abbas Hashim for this great success since it is a new step that confirms the ability of the researcher to achieve outstanding scientific achievements not on the level of Iraq alone, but also on Arabic levels.
