From the Paper:

"When considering threats to state stability in the modern world, one of the most concise is that of urbanization. This has been recognized as one of the many emerging challenges of growing countries, alongside high rates of population growth, cross-border flows, and the young age structure within the poor of some unstable countries. It is predicted that a majority of the world's population growth in the future will be within urban areas, with the urban population expected to increase by 2.1 billion during 2000 and 2030, of the estimated 2.2 billion which will be added to the world. In some regions there are significant differences, in that Latin America is the most urbanized region within the developing world, as three quarters of its inhabitants live within urban areas, similar to the US statistically. Africa has the lowest level of urbanization at the current tie however has the fastest level of growth and so will gain ground in time. Asia's level is similar to Africa although will be experiencing a surge of growth in the twenty or thirty years. As of 1950, there were 86 cities in the world with more than 1 million inhabitants. "
