International Conference in Madrid, July 4-7, 2016

The international conference of the Contested Cities network, under the title From Contested Cities to Global Urban Justice, takes place in a time of growing global resistance and counter-strategies to these injustices, varying in form, scale and approach, and aims to develop counter-dialogues and perspectives, fighting against these injustices, in an attempt to think beyond neoliberalism. It isn’t easy to chose among these five fascinating panels: Concepts towards a critical urbanism – Global urban housing question – The violence of displacement – Forms and limits of gentrification – New urban alternatives.
